The last few days in Annecy before heading out were bittersweet. Said goodbye to some new friends, and am looking forward to see who comes to IFALPES next month. One such friend, Guillaume, my French roommate, was really hard to say goodbye to. We got along really well. He was helpful to answer any questions I had about French, and I was there to help him with his English too. I will be the only student in the house until September I think, when a new French student will move in. When I get back to Annecy on Monday the 5th of July, Daniele’s family will be in town with the new baby boy! Highlights from the last couple meals include a strawberry tirimisu, and fresh cantaloupe with olive oil, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. I would have never thought to put those things together, but it was simple and delicious.
