I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness......years after visiting my sister in the Czech Republic, I've found an imitation of what I've been looking for!!! For the uninitiated, in Prague there is amazing "street food." The sister and I not only enjoyed traipsing but she also taught me to enjoy such food...and by far the BEST thing was the "Smazny Syr," which I tend to describe as fried cheese with mayonaise in a white bun. Nasty, but oh so great.

Well, I am delighted to report that the French fast food chain Quick is carrying an imitation syr. No, it's not the same as the fried delicacies that I may or may not have enjoyed with the sister at 3 in the morning while finding our way home from a 25 cent beer paradise.... BUT, it's pretty darn close. I have to be careful to not devour them all the time!

The movie "Bobby" about Bobby Kennedy just came out here yesterday and I am dying to go see it. I think that's going to be my outing for today because tomorrow (Saturday) I have an all-day trip to Angers planned for school. Literally- I have to meet at the train station at 7:00am (!!) and won't get back until 10pm. Ugh.

Anyway, I am having the hardest time finding the movie in VO (Version Original)/English and the thought of watching a dramatic story about Bobby Kennedy's assasination dubbed in French seems really odd to me...I may just have to try though??

I've been inspired...

So, you all are probably shocked- two posts in two days? Is she okay? What's wrong with KEF?

Well, after some great conversation with my most recent visitor Britt last week, I have been inspired to really put in an effort to write more here. Why? Because as my wise friend put it,(she spent a year overseas as well) a blog actually turns into a GREAT diary that I will be able to look back upon in the future. I really got to thinking about how pitifully I have been keeping track of my time here....I mean, who gets to a foreign country the day before her classes start???

I have been running around like a crazy woman since then and am just now finally feeling like I have my "sea legs" and beginning to have a sense of permanency. Also, my new school is a bit on the SLOW side compared to last semester so I am finding myself with more free time (which is SOOO much better than the NO free time I had last semester...believe me!)

So, all that is just to say that you will all hopefully be reading lots more from my end in the near future! It's my New Years Resolution- 25 days late....look at me- I'm turning FRENCH! :)

Wow....check out page eight!!

They really NEVER get new they?

For some reason I look photoshopped...either that or I look WAY different than I remember.

Cool Merry-Go-Round Scenes from the Eiffel Tower


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! This is just a little taste of what I saw on New Years Eve...we went to the Eiffel Tower which was gorgeously sparkling, and I really enjoyed seeing everything there was to see. There were a TON of people out and about, and it was a great time.

In other news, I FINALLY have internet at home (after three months of waiting!! haha) so hopefully the emails and updates will become a bit easier and a bit more regular. :)

Hope everyone had a great holiday and a great 2007 so far. The time is FLYING!
