My new job is very interesting (thanks for asking Nora!), I am teaching French in a private school for foreign students and I love the atmosphere of travelling, the excitment of learning and speaking French, the enthusiasm of the students and also their exigence. In my classes, I met Patrizia, an Italian woman, whose daughter is living in France, and whose accent is like a song, she's got a laughter in her eyes and she doesn't like writting in French (she's never learnt how to); Awilda, an American from Porto Rico, who hates being cold and likes sharing her experience with the others; Christof, a German boy who is only 17 but very concerned by ecology; Emily, a 20 something Canadian girl who says she hates money (how sweet it is to be young!); and Maxim, from Netherlands, who loves sport and going dancing on Saturday nights (again, good to be young!)
Apart from that, Swann has learnt how to drag his crocodile (I know that sounds kind of weird too, but see picture bellow for a better understanding), Florina has read her first book by Jacqueline Wilson,(hello Kerry!), Earl has had a rather successful week, and I've cooked Asian three days in a row, which I think everybody enjoyed. My main source of inspiration in terms of Japanese cooking, is here.
I now have to start preparing for Florina's birthday celebration with the family on Saturday (birthdays last a looong time around here), I plan to make a Romanian buffet for her (for those who don't know, she's part Romanian Gypsy from her dad)... Work, work, work!
