Tonight was out first sushi experience since we got here. We’ve had sushi in France in our previous visits, and we know they’re not as good as what we have in Lebanon, but we’ve been missing it so much we decided to go anyway (besides the restaurant we went to had good reviews so we … Continue reading

Did I tell you a while ago that fall has started. Well I was wrong! This is fall: Did you see the colors? I felt I was looking at a painting this morning when I opened the window. I have always lived in the city in Lebanon so I have never experienced this phase in … Continue reading

My mum did not work; her job was to take care of her four kids. So every meal she cooked, every homework she helped us prepare, she took her time to do it and she did it with love and care. Women nowadays almost all of them have a job. They don’t have time to … Continue reading

Today was the Rugby World Cup Final; France was playing against New Zealand, and the later won. It seems this sport is really important in this country; the French team is one of the best apparently, so I said to myself that I should watch this final match (usually I’m not a sports person). It … Continue reading

I told you we went to watch a musical called Dracula on Saturday in Paris. The whole week end was perfect, this thing wasn’t. The most famous musicals we had in Lebanon were in the 60’s and 70’s. They were created by two brothers, Assi and Mansour Rahbani. Their songs were with lyrics coming from … Continue reading

It’s now midnight and it’s 13 degrees outside…during the day it was 16…tomorrow during the day it’s going to be 12. Do you know what are these temperatures? It’s the ones we get in Lebanon in December, sometimes also in January. In here in Croix it’s the mid-October temperature. I wonder what it will be … Continue reading

What a sprint we did tonight to catch the train! We almost threw up the crepes we had for diner. This will teach us not to be greedy and have 2 crepes instead of 1 (how could we skip the Nutella chocolate one?) Actually the whole week end was a sprint. On Saturday we were … Continue reading
