La vie en France...

It's been along time, I know, but finally I'm settled in my new home: the french riviera. Does that sound cool or what ? :D
I have to say, it's very different from what I'm used to, another lifestyle. For one, it's expensive ! I paid 3 or 4 euros for 6 slices of ham. And don't even ask about the drinks. The distances are something else. I live in a very cool house, with a pool and everything, but I have to drive half an hour or more to get to school. And it's not a drive thru town, it's not like I could take a bus, we have to drive thru 3 different towns to get there. But, my housemates are cool, school is nice, and everything is just beautiful! I haven't started any real classes yet, my official courses start tomorrow, so I'll let you know how that goes. For starters, my international finance teacher expects us all to have, onthe first day mind you, working knowledge of the financial market, sotck exchange, and other crazy stuff that, as far as I know, I'm paying the school the school to teach me !
But as I've said, and I've said it a lot actually, "but the guy wanted to live on the riviera," and yes I did. And here I am.

End of an era...

Today was my last class with a group I started working with 10 years ago... wow. I've been teaching all of my adult life and finally that road seems to be coming to an end. At least for a while. Saturday will be my last class. And I'll miss it. I know the time has come to seek other paths, to test other skills, but there's a certain satisfaction in transmiting something you love to others that is very hard to find anywhere else
Tonight starts the end of an era. Change is in the wind, and wind is starting to blow. The question is: where will it drop me off ?

Final Countdown...

In exactly one week I'll be getting ready to head for the airport. Damn !! Things are really getting hectic now. I'm proud of myself, last night I actually finished packing half of my stuff. I think hehe. I've you've ever stepped in to my room you know what I'm talking about. I still have some paperwork to deal with, and a few things to buy, but I'm mostly set. I guess this is the time where I finally start to get mushy with my friends and this town I sort of call home. I'm meeting people for almost every meal and then some. It's really starting to feel like good-bye. Is it ? I haven't got a clue. Right now, I'll just settle for getting to my home for the next year. Then? Then we'll just have to see, won't we ?
Thanks for the trip sweetie !
