  1. Wow. It sure makes it real when you post pics! I can imagine it will be a difficult time to get used to it, but you guys will be great there! It’s so interesting to see it vicariously! Bonne chance a tous les choses que vous faites! Encore, nous sommes tres fiers de vous deux 🙂

  2. Great photos Melissa! I hope you’ve been working out your neck muscles in the gym so you can carry your shopping home on your head 🙂

    ps – If you resize your photos to something like 800 x 600 pixels before you upload them, it will be a lot quicker.

  3. Love the photos. The “barbed wire” photo reminds me of the walls we saw in Mexico when Michelle was studying there.
