Are you familiar with the world of DOMs and TOMs ? They are bits of France overseas and they are more or less closely linked to the mother ship. Herself tells me that the, very right on, young French woman who does French conversation classes with her heard a lecturer in UCD (her Irish university) refer to them as French colonies and she was shocked to the core of her being. I mean to the rest of us, they sound a lot like colonies but as a French person, she had never heard of them being referred to in that way or thought of them in that way. On reflection, she found there was much to agree with in the lecturer’s throwaway comment. It appears travel is broadening.
In other news, not much happened today but the American election count continues. Daniel had a long day in front of his laptop, attending his virtual course. It is so grim that they can’t go in person. And I am exhausted from working. Exhausted. And now I’m going to bed. Daily blog updates may yet be the death of me.
