GISH Play-at-Home Round 1 – Item 48 – Drop in for Dinner

Just because we’re sheltering-in-place doesn’t mean we can’t drop in on each other for dinner (virtually). Download the GISH App and use the GEOChat feature to pop in on 5 random strangers in 5 different countries. Find out how they’re doing, how sheltering in place is going in their country, and get the recipe of their favorite quarantine comfort food, then submit them to all us as a page for our #QuarantineCookbook.

Make sure you let us know which country each recipe came from!

GISH App Challenge #5: GISH Bond

IMAGE. It’s easy to be convinced by life that we share nothing in common with people when we might be surprised by how alike we really are. Using the GEOGISH map in your app, connect with a Gisher who lives at least 500 miles from you that you do not already know (we are TRUSTING you on this, so no cheating or you lose 43,893 karma points). Direct message them on the app and try to identify the most startling, weird, unexpected, odd and happily surprising commonality you share. It can be an experience, personality trait, hidden talent, hobby, trait, anything, etc.

Celebrate your commonality on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and/or Tumblr) by posting two images side-by-side of both of you that exemplify your commonality. In the copy of the post, write a short description of this freakish connection. Use hashtag #GISHBond and make sure your post is public. The weirder, the wilder the connection, the better.

**Note:** You can be in more than one post.
