Post-Nantes

Well, the weekend in Nantes was great fun. I spent a good couple of days with friends, wandering around Nantes as well as doing an old-fashioned Sunday Drive up the coast from Pornic past St. Nazaire, La Baule, and finally Croisic. We occasionally got out of the car to walk closer to the ocean, but the winds were really high that day. Later in the afternoon, a massive storm system swept through the area and drenched everything. Fortunately, we were already back in the car by then.

In addition to everything else I did in Nantes, I also ran into a certain person that I had never expected to see again--and certainly not in Nantes; I'm still figuring out how I feel about the whole thing, but it was pretty bizarre.

Anyway, most of today was pretty straightforward. I limped my way to work, got caught up on a bunch of stuff that had been waiting for me, went out for Pho with DJ in Belleville (delicious!), and then headed home and started looking for recordings of the Eurovision semi-finals and finals on a particular internet service that starts with "bit" and rhymes with "abhorrent." Why put all that effort into downloading Eurovision? Because tomorrow night DJ and I are going to eat junk food, drink liquor, and laugh our asses off at the campy glory that is Eurovision. It's gonna be great.

Hi Luis,

I came here when i was searching for information about the residence Lila and read (and best, i saw!) some information in your blog.

I'll be in Paris next February as an Erasmus student at this residence, so thank you very much por the photos, it seems a very nice place to stay during the second semester!

See you!

Biby: Cool! I'm glad you stumbled upon this little blog. I hope it's entertaining! I've got something amusing about Eurovision coming up...

Albert: I'm glad someone actually found my blog stuff useful! I tend to write a lot and some of my photos aren't all that interesting, but there's something to be said for archiving experience. Anyway, if you're an Erasmus student, where are you coming from?

Cool! I have friends in Barcelona right now. It's been more than 10 years since I was there, myself. My Catalán is almost non-existent, but my castellano peruano is decent. Anyway, bon séjour à Paris!
