I'm not sure how long you have been active on a2k, but many people have sought and received good advice on many subjects. It has also assisted in developing friendships, and people meeting people from other countries. I have personally met people through a2k, and met them in person. It includes England, Germany, France, Russia, Mexico, and the US.
Sergei in Moscow met with me, and gave me a tour of Moscow. When I had a layover in Mexico City on my way to Cuba, Francisco gave me a tour of Mexico City.
