English in the Air April 28, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in life, Marseille.
This weekend, walking down the main drag in Marseille to the old port, I was surprised multiple times to hear conversations in English going on around me.
Summer is coming, and along with it tourists. When I was here first in 2005 it wasn’t so back. Just a few sitting in the bars along the old port. But now lots of people show up – both French and non-French. The town is really changing.
Summer is wonderful in Marseille. Warm, with enough wind to keep you from suffocating, and always sunny. Only one problem. At the end of summer it will be time for Paula, Julia, and I to return to Seattle. And teaching.
