Summer in Bretagne

Summer has finally made its way to Vannes, and life is better.  Yesterday I laid out in the sun, and though I earned a few itchy mosquito bites (many of you know that if there’s a mosquito within 20 miles, it will somehow find only me!), my new coat of summertime tan is a welcome change from what was a coldish spring.

Which brings me to ponder just why we have school during the summer here in France – is this the only country where that happens?  I know my friends in the States are enjoying a little time away from the hectic pace of classes to enjoy summertime get-togethers and inter-session workshops.  I’m jealous.

But at least I have the sun and France!
