Rain, France & New Job

Posted on: Miércoles 26 octubre 2005

It has been raining for the past 3 days… Quite sad and depressing. I hope today will be better because I just don’t feel like fighting against rain on my bike, while going to work… *sigh*

If we decide ourselves to go to France, it will be Strasbourg. That’s because it’s where there is the Protestant Theology Faculty. There is one in Paris and the other in Strasbourg. Paris is fabulous to visit, but to live there is another story. And besides, I like the idea of living in a French city so close to Germany (I’d like to bring my knowledge of the language back to shape). What I like about all this, is to think that if we live in Strasbourg (which is a relatively big city with a good airport and train station), well it will be very easy to go spend a week end in Paris, in Belgium, in Switzerland (more expensive, though), or even Italy… Oh, and I skipped Germany, but very close to my mind =)

I suppose that must be somewhere downtown (see the French flags).

The tramway. Looks new, eh!?

The European Parliament. (Do they need some translator? How does one apply to work there?)

On another note, my new job is great. I spend a lot of time translating from English to French, which is not always easy since there are a lot of maritime terms that I’m not familiar with. But the two other secretaries are hilarious (speaking alone, or yelling to each other when there is someone on the phone -on mute, of course- ). Of course, they also make fun of my accent, but only to laugh better with me: I was telling them, “you are hilarious“, and one of them answered, “are you telling me I’m a liar?”. hahah. Sometimes I don’t know what to say, afraid as I am to say the wrong thing, or mispronounce. Oh well, that’s the life of the One Who Wants To Learn Many Languages. *sigh* 🙂
