I should learn to never to eat right before going to AIWC.  I had a yogurt & fruit this morning as I was getting ready.   However, when I showed up at the women’s club this morning for Monday Advanced Beginner’s French class, one of my classmates had made an authentic Brazilian flan for us to have for petit-déjeuner.

It was in honor of it being our last day before summer break, until our course re-starts in September.

I am a little sad that French is over for 8 weeks.   I love the Monday courses with our teacher, E.   I enjoy learning French along with people of all different nationalities.  Our Monday course includes women from Ethopia, The Netherlands, Germany, the United States, Brazil, and England.   Us ladies from the USA and England always get picked on for our harsh pronunciation!!

I’ll miss them all this summer.  However, having a slice of flan while we translated & discussed today’s article about Roger Federer’s win in Wimbledon made it a bit sweeter.
