coming to a close...

Only 6 more days left in France!!! Wowie. Done with classes, only have 4 finals left and then I leave for Mayotte on Friday, to go visit my boyfriend there for three weeks, after which I'll come back to France for a couple days and then back to the US. I'm glad I'm going to Mayotte for a lot of reasons but a big one is that I'm just not ready to go back to the US yet, and this will be a nice, slow transition. And it will really help my French because apparently no one really speaks English there. My French, btw, is really good now, but I mainly just don't practice a lot because most of my friends are English-speakers. A shame, but that's how it goes. Anyway if I get around to it I'll be posting Mayotte pictures on here too. =]

Last night we had a neighborhood "fete des voisins", which was funny because it was actually a nationwide thing--French people don't meet their neighbors and need a government organized block party to do so. hilarious. it was really fun though, and a potluck with real French food is more delicious than you can imagine. Quiches and amazing salads galore.

Last weekend I went to visit Urszula in Lyon again! Here' s the link to my facebook album because I'm being lazy, as per the usual. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2041132&id=1500900035&l=24e90389d3

Hope all is well with everyone. Mucho love.

vacation + bday

In April I went on vacation. I have lots of pictures and am too lazy to make a collage, so here's the link to my facebook album:


I went to the southwest of France for 3 days and then Barcelona for 8 more days. I adored Barcelona, and want to move there, legitimately. Met some wonderful, amazing people and got to practice my atrocious Spanish while enjoying the beauty and spirit of a truly unique city. Plus, while in Parc Guell I took a little photo series, here's the link to that:


And finally I had a birthday! 21 now, wooo! Had a nice birthday party too. =]
