The Sun of Austerlitz

Don’t say that yesterday was sunny – it was rather very cloudy -, but the event makes me fill as on sunny days: I fund a job, or maybe the job funds me! I am going to make studies and development as I was looking for, in a very small company. For that raison I am going to move in Montpellier a south France town, near the Mediterranean Sea and ? the sun.

So two hundred years after the victory of Napoleon, the sun was shinning in my head.
For a bit more of excitement, I have been offered some material as compensation for my work this summer: an extra flat 19 inches screen , a set of high quality speakers, a wireless keyboard and a wireless laser mouse.

Now I am discovering my environment, before moving and been in immersion in a new city and begin a new life. After Reims, Landouzy la ville, Boulogne sur mer, Chabeuil, Saint-Etienne, Aberdeen and Villeurbanne, Montpellier will be mine. I have now to hurry up to find a flat and to begin my life as an active people: to pass the driving license, to get married…

Champagne!

Last Saturday, the famous sparkling wine flew at high speed: it was my graduation day! For me and 120 students of my promotion it was the great day, the one we were waiting for at least 3 year. For me it is the first degree in 5 year, the only one.
Graduation day in France may be a very casual day as there is no tradition at all. It seams that students doesn’t like it, at least those who studied abroad because they carry back a bit of what they have discover: we were several in kilt and a couple wore the Anglo-Saxon university dress (black with the square hat).

After the official ceremony, we had a « gala »: a big party with dinner and dance.

30 years ago…

… it was the wedding of my parents. To commemorate this event, they have organized a meeting: a full week-end in a hostel lost in a beautiful part of the country! As usual, it is amazing to gather the family and friends we haven’t seen for a while. Of course there was « crêpes » on Saturday to maintain the tradition. The week-end closed with a folk bal, with even a Scottish dances! It was animated by some musician of my dance group, thanks to them: it was really great! I loved it!
I also make an apparition in my highlander dress that I was hiding for month… Every one was fully surprise! If I get a good picture of it, I will post it here.

Here, it is me with my wonderful girl friend who was lost on the middle of all these people.
