I'm still unpacking!
Street view of the apartment building. I'm on the ground level - left 2 windows.
West view of my apartment.
Looking out to the street.
The trip was very long and I still have jet lag. Went about 28 hours without sleeping and moving ahead 7 hours in time zones. But other than that I couldn't have asked for better travels out here. No delays, no missed flights or trains, and generally getting along pretty well with my limited French.
Last night we had a welcome dinner, and this morning has been about getting food for ourselves. One of the students and I got up at 7:30 am (12:30am Central) to go to the local cafe. I got a cafe au lait, and it was not what I expected. It was espresso in a small demitasse cup with a small amount of steamed milk on the side. I have to figure out how I can get a Soy Latte. Ha! Then we went to the patisserie, and then the supermarket. I'm going to learn a lot of french this summer, that I can say for sure..
Now off I go to a meeting, then I will probably crash into bed. Hope I sleep better tonight then I did last night!
