Bonjour, Au revoir

2 Sep

Our goodbye to Miami on our last night was spent indulging in our favorite wings at Clarke’s and having one last drink at the bar where we met reminiscing about our time in Miami both together and alone.  Lots of good times were had in my 10 years in Miami and his 3+, but it was now time to make new ones in France.

Upon our arrival to Lyon yesterday, we were warmly welcomed into our new city by a local television crew from a new show called “Hello Goodbye,” which will air on Saturday afternoons on France 2, a major network. No, this was not my best attempt to get some press on our arrival.  I would say it has more to do with the fact that my husband Baptiste’s friend Jean-Charles is six-feet tall and so he rather sticks out in a crowd.  He was approached by the film crew while he was waiting for us.  Of course I was super confused to be greeted this way, not knowing what was going on since I couldn’t understand Jean-Charles as he whispered what was happening to Baptiste in French. I kept looking back thinking there’s no way this is for us.  Then as we exited the airport, I realized they were still following us.  The producer approached us after telling us that she had just interviewed Jean-Charles on who he was waiting for and about his relationship with Baptiste and our move to France.  I don’t think we could have had a better welcome than that.  Hello France!

    Glad you made it….even though your luggage did not. 😦 Of course a television crew was there to greet you! Always working…. Just wish we got that show over here so we could see the expression on your face! Amuse-toi bien!
