On a positive note one of my contacts from a school I am teaching out called me yesterday. She assured me someone has been looking for housing for me in Valenciennes (where I am teaching) and that they would call once they had something. That's great, but I don't want to live in Valenciennes, so I am hoping I can take care of this housing deal on my own. But we shall see...
Mostly today I guess I just wanted to share a few pictures of my last few days of exploring. That is more fun than reading anyways, right? Hopefully there will be more news after the weekend...
They have a Scandinavian restaurant here :) that is a good sign
Of course with a Swedish plate (there also were Scandinavian salads at many of the restaurants I noticed. Maybe being up north has something to do with that?)
A street in Vieux Lille
Me and one of the Rachels (there are 2) in my American Assistants group. We are being tourists in front of the Opera
Look a gun shop!
Beautiful sunset view from where I am staying, at the Place de Jeanne d'Arc (that's a good coincidence)
