Location : Sitting on my temporary bed in my temporary room in my semi temporary home.
|First View of the Mediterranean|
Toilet room. Yes, I can sense curiosity a couple thousand miles away. Toilet room. That pretty much explains it. Just a little room and all it has is a toilet. I got up to make sure I didn’t miss anything and I didn’t. Pretty awesome eh?
Marie-Anne is very nice. She took a lot of care to make sure I knew where everything was and gave me a very good tour of the home before she left for work again. It sounds as of she’s done a bit of travelling, which I will be sure to ask her about soon.
Lou is well, she’s pretty awesome. She is 9 years old, and very much alive. Her, Alissa and I played a board game, and it ended up being quite interesting even though the game itself is ridiculously simple. And she likes Grey’s Anatomy, so we watched an episode of that then ran upstairs to play Post Office for about an hour.
Alissa is the other girl au-pair that came when I was unable to back in September. We haven’t talked much yet, but she gets along with Lou very well and is very pleasant. She’s from Germany.
Marie-Anne has two older children, Alexandra and Pierre, but they’re away at school. I do believe that they will be back for the weekend to meet me.
As you can tell, this wasn’t posted on the 9th. Marie-Anne showed me how to get the WIFI working here, but somehow I couldn’t get it. Oh well. I also couldn’t get the phone to work. I hope this trend isn’t all the rage.
Anyways, the three went out to the theatre tonight. They had offered to get me a ticket too, but I declined. If I sat down in a dark room I will konk right out.
Speaking of which, I’ve had minimal collective sleep in the last two days, so I think I am going to call it a night.
9:49 pm. There are 2 turtles in my room. And they are alive.
PS. An airbus has two rows of three seats. Whereas the plane from Saskatoon to Toronto had only 2. And the Toronto – Paris plane was 2 on each side then 4 in the middle.
