Six years ago Nancy had been my home, while taking an one-year master course at the university there. Now it welcomed me with warm friends and rainy skies. So Sara (the friend who, you may remember, invited me to her parents’ house in Iran) and I spent a cold Sunday morning enjoying coffee and a book and, whenever the sun was coming out of the clouds, stayed out – as long as possible!
It was good seeing Claudia and Tom again: last time I had seen them, they were touring Europe on bicycles. Now, 6 years and two children later, they are thinking about their next destination. Warm conversation, shared memories and home-made boeuf bourguignon, clafoutis and flan nature. And good friends to enjoy it all :)
One last afternoon in Nancy: the city was glowing under the long-awaited sun, just like a cat welcomes the caresses of its master. Goodbye for now.
