Menton

We are still here on the cote d'azur. George arrived safely and we have been on the go since. The apartment is lovely with a hypnotic view of the bay and Italy. It is in the vielle ville and dates back to the 18th century but it has been lovingly restored and modernized.

The end of school was a little disastrous for me. I just couldn't do the oral test. I passed but got really low scores on the ability to express myself. More work for me.

We have visited St Paul which is lovely, Monaco which actually was pretty fun and the hill towns; The roads are one lane with outstanding vistas, but they are not for the faint of heart. I got a chance to revisit some of my favorite places and discover many new.

We will write more when we return or when we find another internet cafe.

Hey Marta!
Glad to hear that George arrived safe and sound, and you're having fun touring together. I'm looking forward to seeing that part of France.
I've no doubt you did your best at school, and probably speak perfectly well when not in a test situation!
Cheers,
Colleen

Hi Marta, I'm so glad I found your blog. I am enrolled in the Institue de Francais so I was googling the school and came across your wonderful blog that way. I know you are still traveling, but when you get back and have some time, I would love to be able to email you directly with some questions. I'm enrolled in the session that begins March 28th, so I have some time, but there are so many things that I need to do now. I would really appreciate it if you would email me so I can ask you my questions and hear more about your experience. Reading your blog made me really excited about my trip. Hope you are having fun in Menton.

Hi Teresa,

I've just returned from France and I'll send you an email. I loved my experience at the Institut and highly recommend it.
