It's been an adjustment getting used to an office environment again. And working 9:30am to 6:30-7pm. And trying to understand French for nine hours. (I'm working on the speaking part, but for now I mostly just listen really carefully... and join the conversation in my head. I'm really as cool as I seem). So, it took no time for me to embrace after-work happy hours! They're the perfect opportunity to wind down from a long day and catch up with an English-speaking friend. As of late, I've been frequenting Le Kitch.a real, homemade dinner.
