French is not my forte…YET

June 15, 2010

Well, looks like it is a good thing I am staying for an extra month in Annecy. I didn’t do so hot on the first exam…  It is comforting to know the French grading scale is much different from America’s, grade inflation is no problem here! Luckily we have one more test before this term is over, so I can improve my grade before then.

Plenty of good things did happen today!

1. Found out my Mom and Don are coming to visit in August! Can’t wait to show them around town.

2. Tried my first French macaroon! Pistachio of course, and it was delicious.

3. Dinner was fabulous. White fish marinated in white wine was first. Daniele brought out what looked like a pizza next. It was in fact, a tart of sorts with cheese and tomatoes and Herbs de Provence. We had salad dressed with her own homemade vinegar. Dessert was simple, the first cherries of the season and meringue cookies!
