Done Deal

$849. As STA Travel Lady charged my Mater Card this afternoon, it became official. On September 20 I will set foot in France, homeless and (nearly) broke. But then I will devour a baguette, and all will be right in the world.

Wow... you bought your ticket already? I'm jealous. I was thinking about arriving on the 20-21... where are you going to be for the year?
(PS - I noticed you're Cuban American. My boyfriend just spent three months studying in Cuba.)

Yup. But I'll need to buy a second roundtrip because I have to come home for a wedding. I'll be in the Nantes academie. You? What's your boyfriend studying in Cuba?

espranglais. thats a great name. do you have your arrete yet?

dw said...

I'll be buying a second round trip (don't tell my bank account...) to come home for Christmas.
I have a friend in Nantes I think, perhaps you'll meet up!
The program my bf was with was technically studying Environment and Business, but he broke off and did some history stuff on his own with a prominent professor.

No arrete yet, which is drving me crazy.

dw, it would be great to have any contacts in Nantes, particularly if I'm near that city. I don't know anybody in the region.

Do you have Facebook? There's a big group there and one specifically for Nancy-Metz too if you want to get to know them. And I think we should all be getting an email list of all the people in our academies soon.
And I hear you on the no arrete making me insane and close to stroking out...

Love the blog name; muy cosmo cherie.

dw, I rarely use facebook. More of a myspace girl, really. But I am on there and have already signed up in the group for assistants and in the one for Nantes. There's also a forum, www.assistantsinfrance.com (not sure if you've come accross it yet), that's been really helpful.

Rei, thanks. I thought it was very diasporic of me.
