BB de Nice

Well, BB arrived as expected on Saturday, and we've been hanging out around town ever since. He basically beat jet-lag right away, although he almost fell asleep on his feet while we were waiting for a taxi on Saturday evening.

Why did we take a taxi? Because it was Beau-papa's birthday party on Saturday, and Jube took the car out to Montpellier where the belle-famille partied at a Syrian restaurant. I was very disappointed that I couldn't go, but I'm sure we will have other chances to party together... I hope sooner rather than later!

The weather has been wonderful here, sunny and not too hot (unlike the rest of France, from what I've heard!), although today was hotter than it has been yet. So what is on the program for the rest of BB's visit? Well, Jube and I had already decided to go to Cannes, Eze, Monaco, St Tropez... the normal Riviera stuff. But, it's already Tuesday and we haven't left the city. I think we're having a good time, though--no complaints yet! Tomorrow we are going to meet Sam around lunchtime, and then we might go somewhere OUT of the city. I'll try to keep updated--and hopefully the next post will be more interesting!

You said on one of your first entries to this blog back in June or July 2005 that you " It's the French version of America's Funniest Home Videos (and most of them do come from America). I like it because I don't have to concentrate on understanding French." Yet the French version of your blog is in perfect French. It looks like from your writing that you would not need to concentrate much since you are already very very fluent in French.

Well... I might understand French now, but I haven't always! Plus, I have Jube look over the French version for big mistakes before I publish it. Is that cheating? My written French is very informal, and I don't think I could write a proper letter without help from Jube. I hope that answers your questions.

Yes that answers my question thank you.
