Our First Month is in Dragiugnan
We arrived in France on August 7, 2008 at the Nice airport after an awful trip with 6 huge suitcases and a dog! We were immediately picked up by Philippe and made our hour long trip to their home in Dragiunan. It was wonderful to see Marie-Claude and Philippe again after so many years apart, and even better to have this year to really get to know them.
After a some days rest we went to Jacqueline's house in Saint Cristol and spent the weekend. It was so much fun for everyone..there was a pool for Abigail, a yard for Lilly and the family for me. I got to meet Nadia and her husband a sweet baby girl (Izalia) not sure on the spelling. Also a friend of, well of every one's Paschal came with his two kids Cammie and Yohan, all of whom spoke both French and English. Again Abigail was in heaven...a little girl her age to play who spoke English and with a British accent no less. Jacqueline's house was beautiful and a shame that it is left vacant most of the time due to her job. I hope she'll be able to retire soon and enjoy it to the fullest.
