I'm an Italian woman who works for an Italian company that has a close working relationship with a few American companies. More specifically I am the Italian liaison of a kinda big department in one of these companies, so basically everything that my American colleagues decide comes through me and I relate it to my Italian colleagues.
In the years I've worked there I've made good friends with some of these American colleagues and this past summer one of them, S (F early 30s), invited me to her house in the US. I had been in the US many times before that, but always for work, never for leisure, so I was really happy!
It's the 4th of July and S has organised a nice party; I meet other people who work for the same company but whom I didn't know, amongst them M (F mid-late 20s) with her newborn baby girl Gigi. I'm not big on children so I mostly ignore the baby, but I talk to M for a while and with other people too.
