• September 16th, 2007: John Thornton, formerly of Goldman-Sachs and part-time (very part-time) resident of Charleston, in the hospitality lounge of the Beijing Grand Hyatt
  • February 15th, 2008: Wally and Bev Seinsheimer of Charleston, met in the restaurant of the Llao Llao hotel in Bariloche, Argentina.
  • March 27, 2008: Jane Garnett, David Booth, and their daughter Taylor and son Oliver, in Cairo. We independently planned our trips and, by coincidence, we were both in Egypt at the same time, and met for dinner. It wasn't a chance encounter entirely, but the fact that we were all in Cairo at the same time was coincidental.
