Five weeks and counting…

It has now officially been five weeks since the Prefecture told me my new Carte de Séjour was in Paris and that I should receive it soon. I wonder what the French definition of soon is.

My récépissé expires in two weeks. I only have two months left to apply for my French driver’s license. ::sigh::

I know summer means vacation, but this is a bit excessive. I’m afraid they lost my card and I’ll have to apply all over again.

But on a completely different subject… I uploaded the Provence pictures! J’ai hâte d’y habiter… Provence, France – July 2007

P.S. If you are watching France2 right now, you can see the Théâtre Antique in Orange that I visited last week. The opera Le Trouvère is being performed there and it’s broadcast live.

    Beautiful photos! The roman theatre is in Orange?

    Hope your paperwork sort itself out soon. I know how fustrating it is dealing with french gov. officials. With me they never seem to know what documents I need to give them, each person gives me different answers. So if they don’t know their job who would?? :)
