After Paris my son and his wife flew back to Ecuador. I missed them right away, but took the train to Bordeaux to visit friends, Baptiste and his wife Hannah. Baptiste was my second couch surfer years ago, when he moved to Oregon to get a teacher’s certificate.
We all stayed at his parents home and spent Saturday in the nearby village where they live and commute by train for 30 minutes to Bordeaux. Baptiste teaches and Hannah does some occasional jobs, like an after school program teaching tots. But their big news is Hannah is pregnant with their first child. Everyone is thrilled, but poor Hannah is nauseous most the time.
In front of their apartment.
Dinner in the garden at Baptiste ‘s parents, with his sister. Great food and company.
