Hello, I wanted to compliment you on your photography and your incredibly intriguing blog (and adventures). We have exchanged twice so far..first one month in Paris and then a month in Burgundy. My husband is a pharmacist so our exchanges are limited to summer vacations (sigh!) oh well, I get to live vicariously through blogs such as yours! I wanted to ask for your help/advice. My son Cairo is spending a Rotary exchange year in Mougins beginning August 23rd. We are racking our brains trying to decide what to bring his new host "sister" who is 13 years old.We live in Peoria Arizona, so I can't think of anything we could buy here that would enthrall a 13 year old French girl - perhaps I am mistaken?Any pointers would be gratefully received :)
Hi!I woke up to your message and I can't believe all the coincidences! We lived in Peoria for 7 years and my in-laws still do - 83rd & Happy Valley! My neighbor across the street in Peoria was a pharmacist. When my niece spent a year here in 2010, she became friends with a boy at Lycee Carnot who was here with the Rotary from California! Crazy!Do you know where the family lives exactly and what school the sister goes to? Maybe we know them! (It's a small town).French girls are basically just like American ones - they play on their iPads, they use Instagram, they love Abercrombie & Fitch (which I hate, personally:). You can get pretty much everything here now, which is probably why you can't think of what to send her!Some things we have shared with our French friends here that you can't get in France are: Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, Twizzlers, Orbit gum (sweemint), and those little white powdered donuts (Hostess?)Anything from Old Navy because that store doesn't exist here - or a pair of Tom's, because they are just barely, kind of making their debut in France and they are surely more expensive here! Good luck! I'd love to know where your son will be living, it's always nice to know an American when you're far away from home . . .
Bonjour, j'ai découvert votre blog aujourd'hui, j'ai l'impression d'avoir vu un film, avec ses joies et ses peines, bonne continuation pour vos projets et à votre magnifique famille.
Merci Eric - la vie est comme ca, avec les hauts et les bas, n'est-ce pas? Un film avec que les beaux images enfin est moins beau qu'un film avec des larmes et des tristesses a surmonte . . .
