Nous sommes arrivés! We have arrived!

Bon Jour!  We are now in Grenoble, France for a year-long stay!  Our adventure began in North Carolina when we started thinking about the possibility of a sabbatical stay away from NC in a country that we have visited twice and for which we have a fond affection.  When Steve found that the Grenoble Ecole de Management offered a program for which he is suited – a DBA (Doctorate in Business Administration ) with an emphasis on entrepreneurship, we decided to see if it was possible to be admitted and to move to Grenoble for the experience.

So, we have arrived and are having a “temps formidable.”  We would like to say “hello” to our friends in America who have been very involved in our adventure by their support or with their “party” participation : Matt and Beth <our beautiful children of whom we are very proud>, Allyn and Bob <our long-time best friends >, Rich & Cher, Heather, Heidi, Huckle, & Andrew (& significant others), Catherine Marie, Jenny Drisko ,Kathy Marynak, Debbie Jenkins, Doreen Elliot, Cheryl Yee, Paula Barefoot, Diana Agius, Raymonde Koonce, Dulce Zepeda, Rey Quintano,  Dan Povia, Brent & Cindy & Maggie, Madame Michele Darrah, Madame Mireille & Monsieur Bernard Van Dyck & ses enfants, Morgan and Manot, From Yoga: Carolyn <Yoga instructor extraordinaire> & Robert Wilcox, Jim & Barbara, Lori, Nicole, Lynn, Nancy, Candy, Renee’, Nick & Rosemary, and all our other fellow Yogis, Pam and Kevin, Barbara & Bob Yde, Tom & Trish, Beryl, Seth & Liz, Elaine, Robin & Eliza, Debbie & Bob, and all of our other Cedar Fork and NCSU friends!  Please excuse any omissions… you’re all wonderful and appreciated!

    Maureen and Steve – I’m so glad that you have arrived safely and are enjoying Grenoble. I’m looking forward to your posts and learning vicariously about living in France. I miss you already, Catherine

      Thanks, Catherine. I hope you find the posts on WordPress to be both interesting and funny. I’m still learning the picture adding thing. I need to resize photos to post on FB, too.
      Please check the blog when you can. At this point everything is new, and I’m trying to keep up so as not to forget about things. Are you in Iowa? Is it a relief from NC heat? It gets hot, but dry, here during the day. The nights are cooler, but no a/c, so windows/doors are open for cross-ventilation , but no screens. We are on a busy street, and there is a baby in the apt. below who was wailing around 2 a.m. last night! Have forgotten what apt. living is like.

    This is my last day in Iowa. It has been much cooler and we have had some rain. Going back to NC tomorrow. I just wrote a comment about your most recent post. Take care and have fun!
