April so far

What have I been doing these past couple weeks? Well... voilà!

Dinner at an Indian restaurant with my assistant friends who I hadn't seen in a while (ok, so this was really at the end of March). Met a waiter from Bangladesh who asked if I knew Brian Lara. Admittedly I'm not a fan of cricket, but it was cool to meet someone who knew about Trinidad!

Cycling to Lac de Saint-André on April Fools Day




Teaching - almost finished! 19 hours to go!

Food at the collège - good stuff!
Bread, yogurt, flan, green peas, potatoes and veggies, fish, cole slaw, olives = €2.80


Finished!! Yummy :-)

University (including relatively stressful marketing project and guest lecture in Spanish)

Cycling to Lac du Bourget on the weekend

Stressing unnecessarily

Delicious pain de campagne which I'll not be eating again for aesthetic reasons :-)

Apartment cleaning... sigh I saw a spider! Lo maté inmediatamente! Fui muy valiente!

Vacances scolaires (for 2 weeks!!)

Lyon ^^ to visit mon copain :-)
(Also, tour with a student from New Zealand: Musée Gallo-Romain de Fourvière, Théâtres romains de Fourvière, Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière, Cathédrale Saint Jean, Musée des miniatures et décors de cinéma)

You can see the Saône river, the Tour Part-Dieu (Lyon's tallest skyscraper, like a giant pencil, appropriately nicknamed le crayon), Place Bellecour, and even a flying object (looks like a bird!)


Musée des miniatures et décors de cinéma, Vieux Lyon

This is a miniature piece by Dan Olhmann, Le Boudoir Louis XVI.

The Saône river

Gaming - tried World of Warcraft in Lyon and yesterday bought Desperate Housewives le jeu

Dinner at a Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant in Villeurbanne ^^

Accommodation search for next year - student residence?!

Laptop issues - it's unable to close

Visits to the Mairie and the Préfecture - I should be getting another récépissé anytime soon

Warm, sunny days - some people are even wearing shorts!

Reading

Thinking

Beginner's hairdressing

Watching TV series online

Cooking, eating, sleeping

7 months in France (as of today!)

Wondering what ESL activities to do with my students - ideas anyone?

Upcoming 1st trip to Paris this weekend ^^

Well, that about sums up April so far!
