I was introduced to Greg about 4 months ago and we have also become good friends. When he mentioned he wanted to come visit the states I thought it would be a great idea to have him come stay with my family. Ya know, to get a little culture going in my house and help him save some money. My parents were a little skeptical at first...ya know the whole internet thing still freaks them out but they finally decided it would be ok. So on August 8th Jessie, Sarah and I picked "French Greg" up at the airport and so began our 3 1/2 weeks of living with someone from another country. The language barrier was a tad difficult at times, but all in all he understood most things as long as we talked with "slow and simple words". It really was a joy to have him around and when it was time to say goodbye I have to admit I was pretty sad. But, I now have an open invitation to say at his house whenever I want to visit France. Who wants to go to France with me?!?!
One of the things Greg loves to do is ride his bike (my mom let him borrow her bike during his trip) and do "wheelies" all along the streets. So one day I decided to get him in action and this is what I was able to capture. He also has a neat trick where he rides straight up to a person, stops, tilts the back tire up and gives them a kiss (not everyone got the lip action like Jessie).
We miss you French Greg!!!!!
