Some Stuff I Have Learned So Far....

Many French people have small dogs
Very few French speak English
The stores aren't crowded, and the roads are very quiet, there are not many cars, if any
Most stores close for two hours-for a lunchbreak
Our local post office in Issac is only opened mornings
There is a market day every Saturday in Mussidan
A lot of towns have a closed day during the week

Things my friend Elena has told me about school:
     Her school is from 8am to 5pm
     It is a half day every Wednesday, children get off at 1pm
     She rides the bus to school every day
     They were off school Tuesday because of a national holiday
     Elena gets one hour for lunch in school
     The lunch is a four course meal
     She said that kids our age wear jeans and denim or leather jackets
     She also told me that *popular* girls at her school wear big hoop earrings with feathers                         covering their entire cheek!
