Thank goodness it's finally Friday! Despite all the fun I've had this week, I would be lying if I said that I wasn't excited for the weekend. I was told early on that the French are so enthusiastic about their weekends, in fact, that they will always go on strike on a Thursday. This allows them to take off Friday as well, thereby creating a four-day weekend for themselves! Smart.

Plans for this weekend include an organ concert in Albi Saturday evening; Sunday is reserved for church and a hike with our charming French professor, Marie, to the ruins of an ancient chateau.

P.S. Isn't this little scratch map super fun? It's like playing the lottery...except you're a winner every time because you get to scratch off all the places you've visited!

P.P.S. Happy October!

P.P.P.S. How is it already October?


  1. 1. It was October in France before it was October here, so I blame your side of the world for the speediness of time.
    2. I WANT ONE OF THOSE MAPS. Where did you find it and do they have them for the whole world, or just certain parts?

  3. I don't actually have this map...but I think it's been added to the wish list because it's just so fun. If it does have the whole world, then I may just have to buy it. Try clicking on the link I added to "scratch map" and let me know if it worked for you!
