Thank you La Lousiane. Did you or your fiance have to live in France for 40 days prior to your civil ceremony? also, thanks for the info on your friend and his creperie. This is what I am afraid of....I hear..thru my fiance's family that patisseries and boulangeries are closing all over the place. I guess I've just come to one of those crossroads in life....I really am not a materialistic person, but, I know we could make a much better living in the US and retire earlier, etc. But...I think our everyday lives would be better in france....better family life, culture, etc. But I worry about being able to afford a house, etc. Sigh....such is life. And I should feel blessed to have to make such a decision. anyway..I'll try to post in other threads in the future, since this one is for introductions...

Default Introduction

Hi. I'm an Englishman living in New York City. I've just bought a pied-a-terre in Paris, and am hoping that I'll be able to find a little help here as I settle into my new place.

I'm a forensic pathologist and a writer (food and travel, mostly, with my first novel coming out next autumn) and a lifelong francophile.

Not sure what else I should say! Here's my web page:

www.jonathanhayes.com

I'll see you in the forums!

J.

Welcome to the forum Jonathan

I find your articles very interesting (feel free to include your web link in your signature)

My father used to teach anatomy to med students in Switzerland and Australia. He'd often sneek me in to the human dissection theatre after hours to show us what he had been up to, a big eye opener for a ten year old :O scary as hell, but my sister and I would always beg him to do it again haha. As you said yourself, death is hidden away and so sanitised in modern life, I guess that's why we crave shows like CSI on telly

Hello, my name is Alisa. I'm an American, married to a Frenchman, and we have one son who is a year old. I have lived in France on & off since I was 18 (am now 29) and permanently since 1999. I majored in French in college. I'd love to meet any English-speakers with young children in the area so my son can eventually get more English input than just my own!

We just moved from a noisy condo in Val d'Oise to a small village in Aisne. We also have a condo in the Alps (Les Arcs) if anyone's interested in renting it to go skiing; I'll post it in classifieds when I get around to it.

Going to add myself to the Google map now!

Yes, I'm afraid I am! It sort of fell into my lap one day while I was otherwise employed, but after a while I quit my other (boring) job and now program full-time. (Well, full-time in a French sense of the word )

Thanks, d-g - I'm glad to be here!
