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?? :)

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
