South Jefferson High School in Paris


You've all seen the results I suppose, let's take a break from the elections for a while, I'll come back to them when the second round is in sight... Right now, I would like to wish a happy return home to the students of South Jefferson Central School (and to their teacher Françoise) who are regular visitors to PDP and who I finally had the pleasure to meet last week.
Talking about meetings, let me remind you that all those who happen to be in Paris this Friday (April 27) are kindly invited to a little PDP gathering. I will let you know - Thursday at the latest - where it'll take place (depending on the weather).

  2. Fantastic! What a wonderful treat for American kids taking French to meet and greet Our Eric. I heard the speeches of Bayrou, Sarkozy, and Royale....I understood about 80 per cent....What a thrill for me.

  4. Hi Eric and All,

    I've been away for quite a while from your blog but now I'm back and so happy to see you are still producing photos of quality and timeliness - I'll continue to be inspired by your images!

  9. Great group picture! And I'm really glad to see there is nobody climbing down the Arc de Triomphe with signs, this time [like in June of 2006] :)

  10. What a nice group and what a beautiful photo. Hope they had a great time there (they certainly did) and have a safe trip back!

    Did they go to the top of Arc de Triomphe with you that day Eric?

  11. Can't say how sorry I am that I won't participate in the PDP meeting...

    ...but I've got great news: I've bought my flight ticket to Paris!!! The date is set, Paris I'll see you in July! Yay!!!

    (the sooner we buy the tickets here the cheaper they are - which is still expensive! - I believe it's the same everywhere)

  13. I wish I could have gone to Paris when I was in high school - how fun!! I'll be thinking of all of you luckies who will be at the PDP party on Friday - so, so jealous! Here's wishing you fabulous weather and good cheers!

  15. Thurday, hmmmm...if I have won tonight's lottery draw, I think I'll just be able to make it. At least pasport is in order (and I know where it is!)

  16. You're two ahead of me then Sally. Mine's still in my married name, no idea where. Oh and you won't win tonight, because i'm going to.

  17. Aww, I'm happy for all those young folks! A bit jealous of everyone who went or is going to Paris, but that's ok. I'll make it someday!

  18. Looooove the picture! It was such an honor to meet you, Eric. And we did have a fantastic time in France. Can't believe we're back to school already. It will be a treat to show the photo and the nice comments to the students! Have fun at the PDP get together everyone! Françoise

  20. Ps - your arch of triumph staircase shot was an absolute beauty, Eric!

    ReplyDelete
  21. OK Nathalie, we save you both a drink LOL!

    PS: when will they build a TGV from Sydney to Paris?!

  22. Well...I wish I could take a "supershuttle" from SanFran to the banks of the Seine for the PDP picnic...but alas and alack..no such luck. Perhaps tomate and I will finally organize our SF/PDP Meeting??? Ehhh..tomate??

    Such a great feeling that a wonderful blog has attracted all these young PDP'ers and we get a photo!!

    Sab...good to see you are "back in the loop" and the blog is in production again. I think that is how I originally found PDP, by a link on your blog. Salut!!!

  23. These kids are probably gonna remember the trip the rest of their lives. By the way, the blond girl with the sunglasses on the right looks just like a movie star! Watch out, Angelina Jolie! :)




    (KP Gallant: we said end of the month, and I guess it's that time. We're thinking about meeting in a friendly coffee shop in the City, maybe on a Saturday afternoon or something like that. If you have any good ideas, let me know.)
