Fall break Part I: the beginning Happy fall break ! It’s a foreign concept, but fall break actually falls in the MIDDLE of the semester at Paul-Valéry and UMontpellier 2. Crazy.

Not to say that the adventures before-hand we less real, this is just going to be a week of traveling and seeing and […]
