We Come From France

So I'm in France now, and so far it's been a good trip. The people are very nice, the high-speed train ride from the airport to Angers (the town I'm in right now) was scenic and beautiful, and Angers is a gorgeous town that seems textbook eurpoean.

I've started writing some journal entries that I'm tempted to post on here, but they're pretty long. Let me know if you're interested in reading it, and I'll post them on the blog.

So far work-related things are going okay. They're really behind in preparations for the build, though, so we aren't going to even start building the boards until this afternoon. They were hoping to be completely done with the build today, but from my experience that's never the case. I expect to be building for the next 2, if not 3, days.

The funniest part of the trip so far - In restaurants, the house wine comes out of a tap. Just like beer. I shit you not. I find the whole idea of tapping a wine keg hilarious!

But that's just me. ;-)

I do! I do! What's the point of having a blog if you don't USE it?

keg wine is technically referred to as table wine over there. just so you don't piss off the natives and they start giving you vinegar to drink instead. ;o) but it is probably locally made and presumed to be 'not good enough' for anywhere but local area. see, taking intro to winemaking wasn't a completely useless class!

I wouldn't have learned a damn thing in that class. I probably would've been drunk off my keester the whole damn time. ;-)

"Table wine, professor? I ain't nowhere near the table!"
