15-year-old Roman,  had a huge party last night in Cassis.   His grandparents, our proprietors,  told us weeks ago about the party, maybe hoping we’d be gone, cause they knew it might be a tad loud.  So, we don’t go anywhere as we have been gone all day and want to be home to watch an English movie. Hooray.  Roman comes over  about  8PM to our apartment next to the “grand maison” of his grandparents to  say “Bonjour” and gently states he hopes the music doesn’t ‘bother us” and apologies in advance if it’s loud. “No problem,” we say, “Have a wonderful party/fete”     So!   Lovely girls in cute dresses, &  guys in jeans show up  – all with relief on their faces after the BIG FRENCH EXAM DAY is finally over!   We’re inside watching a very loud WWII movie while couples glided past our pane doors…..laughing, talking, having fun, and no doubt trying to find a secluded place to kiss.  🙂 – (David goes to close the shutters and comes back with an “OH!!!!” –  a man of few words   😉 .    Others were in back of the house by pool having a great time, the music and the base going strong.   We remembered those carefree young days with a smile.  The party and music suddenly ended at midnight.  Wow.    Then, Roman once again comes  over this morning, his girlfriend in tow,  and brought us a bottle of Champagne for the “inconvenience.”    How I love these kids.

(He doesn’t know we were dancin’ in the moonlight)     🙂

    • Yes, you did Svenja, and it brought me as much fun, because I love to hear them speak German as well. I have a lot of fun with Sandrine – and her friend like a brother – her “nou nou” from way back…….He lives near Dusseldorf now. Sandrine has a good chance to use her German as there are many Germans that visit Cassis….and we find them at the “Les Cigales Campground” when we play “boules”. Fun!!!
