7 ans

I’ve been in France seven years. Some days it feels like I’ve been here forever and other days I feel just as “foreign” as when I arrived. It’s been a journey full of joys, frustrations and many other things and I can’t imagine not having come to this country.

I don’t know how much longer I’ll stay, but for now the journey français continues…

Congratulations!

You might have got a shorter sentence for Manslaughter?

I'm coming up for my eighth Fanciversary and I think I might have got the hang of the place in about another 20 years.

Only one thing to do - raise a glass of wine and plod on!

All the best

sigh - i have been in the mid west for eleven years and realize what an outsider i am and how much i dislike living back in the 60's....

so - it does not matter whether you are in a foreign country or a different state - where ever you are from birth is alien - how you take that and deal with it is the solution....

Keith - 20 years? I was thinking closer to 40.

Deborah - I feel "foreign" in Seattle so I agree with you that it's all in how you deal with it.
