It’s French Lesson day at LG and Mari gets into the kitchen for the first time!

So today is our French lesson day; every Thursday afternoon volunteers at La Giraudiere can participate in a French lesson provided by our professeur Lyn,  so all the volunteers hurry during the morning hours to get as much work done and be free after lunch.

Paul, Marlou and Elizabeth install the door for the new bathroom and start the levelling process of the walls, Derrick and Marisela go out to take a panoramic pictures of LG for the website Denise is working on; while Emilie and Jim are working on the garden.






At noon, all is ready to have some lunch and wait for Lyn pour apprendre et étudier le français. The class is fun and useful for the volunteers and before we know it’s 5pm and Raymond and Jean-Michel stop by LG to say hello. Before they leave they make sure that we are all going to the Pétanque game tomorrow in Brossac –we wouldn’t miss it for the world, Raymond!

Today it’s Marisela’s first time to cook, and although she is Venezuelan, she has decided to make a Lebanese chicken and rice dish for tonight. The weather is nice so we eat outside and the Lebanese cuisine is a great success at LG!


bon appétit
