While in so many ways I pull off “being French,” these days I’m utterly failing at one major French trait: going on holiday on the month of August. Even the lifeguard at the pool was alarmed when I told him I’m staying put this month. (And not only am I staying but, I’m working double time with my upcoming visit to the Préfecture de Police regarding my visa). It’s been a good thing that Paris brings the beach to me with Paris Plage, but even that wraps up this weekend. There is already talk of la rentrée when everyone returns from their holiday. I’m hoping that for me I can finally hop away from my computer and breath for the first time in a month. . .
