Evian water

Evian water is French. The journey of the water starts high in the Alps and continues for 15 years through a vast mineral aquifer deep within the mountains. It emerges in the town of Evian where it is bottled. It is untouched by man and free from pollution. It contains lots of minerals and is said to be good for your health.

Hotel de Ville

In France the Hotel de Ville is not a hotel but the town hall. This is where the local government make their decisions for the local area. This is a picture of the Hotel de Ville in Annecy.

Tomorrow is my last day at MACC for this term. I will be on long service leave for the rest of the term. I will be travelling to USA for a week then to France. I am fortunate enough to have enrolled in a French Language School in a small village in the French Alps called Annecy. It is a beautiful medieval town on a lake, surrounded by snowcapped mountains.  I am looking forward to brushing up on my language skills and using them when I return.  Mr. Sales will be taking all Language classes in my absence.
