What do groundhogs and crêpes have in common?

February 2 is Groundhog Day (le jour de la marmotte) in North America; but here in France, it’s la Chandeleur (le jour des crêpes).

I forgot to mention that my interview is now up at Expat Interviews.

Oh, and the president got married today. Apparently Sarko & Carla only met in November?? That was quick.

    Methinks they met long before but kept it under wraps until he won the election and it was magically revealed that his marriage was over. His marriage was over long before he won the election, same for Royal, who revealed straight afterwards that her partner and her hadn’t been together in years and he had a girlfriend. Considering the French value privacy so much I’m surprised they both bothered to lie about the state of their marriages during the election..

    Good interview! Nice photos as well.

    Do kids there pelt each other with flour for Chanelier Day? They sure do in Paris. What a mess.
