Finally Spring!

The weather in France is beautiful!  It's been warm since Friday (we haven't had a heatwave like the US has) and the days are longer and longer, especially since we had Daylight Savings Time start yesterday.  Unfortunately is has been extremely foggy many of the mornings, which makes it hard to get up and go to work!

Last week I got the chance to go to the coast again.  Karen and I helped with the trip for the Russian students that are visiting the high school.  The day started with a tour of a local cookie factory (which included a box of free cookies!).  I ended up translating the tour, so I learned a lot about the cookie making process.  Then we went to Lannion for the weekly market, I bought a ring made by a famous Breton designer for 10€, when the ring normally sells for over 30€!  I also bought some great local soaps and delicious strawberries (grown in France).  We then headed to the granite coast where we spent a few hours before heading back to Guingamp.  It was a tiring day because we had to keep track of the students, and we learned a lot about Russian culture, but definitely worth it!

We then spent the weekend in Rennes with some friends.  The weather was beautiful, and it was a lot of fun.  Unfortunately I left my camera behind, so there are no photos to share.

There are now only two weeks until our next vacation (Spain and Paris) and only three weeks of work left in my contract.  I'll try to be good about updating during that time!!


  1. God I hate the fog... When are you going to be in Paris? My parents are coming to France and we'll be there the 9th-12th!
