French woman in English Canada.

Looking for comrades to start a revolution.

In the meantime, I write stories, explore cultures and travel. You know, the usual.

It’s Been a Hard Day’s Night

I’m a young office worker. The world is mine. As soon as I’ll finish my cigarette, I’ll go deal with the commissioner, a weekly task to which I excel. That’s life when you go teach at the government...

List of Weird Things I’ve Tasted

I love testing new food when I travel. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't... but you end up with some pretty cool stories to brag about !

Here is my top five of the weirdest things I ate.

Us And Them

Office workers have always fascinated me. I used to see them in public transportation, early in the morning : guys drinking their daily shot of black java in some kind of fancy spill proof cup; women...

Power To The People

Qu'avons nous inventé ces derniers temps ? Qu'avons-nous appris ? Ce dernier mandat présidentiel a apporté son lot de révoltes, mais aucune innovation. J'en arrive à penser que notre président à fait...

中国 – 一个神秘的国家吗?

过去,在很多西方人看来,中国人民共和国是一个很神秘的国家。的部分的法国人觉得中国很远,我也想永远不会有机会去。然而,我的思想发生了很大的变化。确实,随着中国改革开放政策的推行,去中国旅行发展实业讲学的西方人一天比一天多了。 我一九九九年单独去了中国。去中国旅行以前,虽然我一直有旅行的习惯,但是大家还对我说我非要注意不可。在中学期间,我不但学习说汉语,写汉字,而且关于中国人...

Do You Want To Argue ? Pleeeeease…

When I went to China, my whole world just crashed. Not only I was seen as an immigrant and a foreigner for the first time of my life (a European visiting another European country isn't really a...

Go Sens, Go !

Go Sens, Go !

Four hockey fans were climbing a mountain one day. Each was a fan of a different team, and each proclaimed to be the most loyal of all fans of their hockey team. As they climbed higher, they argued...

Chameleon

Chameleon

When I was a kid, I used to look up at the sky and try to spot the planes. I stared as long as I could, my eyes tracking the huge bird breaking though the clouds, wondering where it was going, what...

The Ying And the Yang

I used to carry my whole life in a bag. Light burden, easy to tidy up. Before we came to Ottawa, we lived on the road for almost two years. Central America, South America, South Pacific… A...

Winterlude!

Winterlude started last week in the nation's capital. Probably the best way to celebrate winter and the waaaay below freezing temperature ! Sculpting ice when it's - 20C is a Canadian sport... And...

Résistance à la connerie humaine

Résistance à la connerie humaine

Géniaaaal... Une bande de 1300 rednecks qui n'ont sûrement jamais vu un immigrant Arabe (quand on en est réduit à ce degré de simplicité, l'immigrant est forcément Musulman, Islamiste, terroriste et...

A trop fumer la Fleur de Lys…

A trop fumer la Fleur de Lys…

Je suis en train de me demander si je vais voter aux élections présidentielles de Mai 2007. Pas par rejet de la société ou accès de rébellion soudain : tout simplement parce que je trouve curieux de...

Snow Fall!

Tried again at 12:00, it was a bit better, although streets weren't cleared out yet. I love seeing people driving in the snow : people have exactly the same driving pattern (tailgating on the...

Des deux côtés de l’Atlantique

Il y a presque 5 ans, je débarquais pour la première fois de ma vie en Amérique du Nord. En ce mois de janvier 2007 le plus chaud que nous ayons connu jusque là (janvier sans neige à Ottawa, c’est...
