I found an old entry in one of my various rotating journals. This one was dated 14/6/2015;
“I met an adorable French girl on the plane.
She sat next to me.
She had blonde hair and blue eyes. Her husband is Vietnamese. He only spoke Vietnamese and French.
They told me they just had their second wedding celebration in Vietnam.
She was so happy to get bread and butter on the plane after spending a month in Vietnam. She said she was also craving cheese.
She told me she had food poisoning, and that she disliked the weather and the humidity. it made her hair develop some unnecessary curls.
She also told me about France. She was from the east of France.
She was from the east of France.
She said living in France was hard, that it was not a guarantee to get a job after university, and even if you do, it won’t pay the bills.
She said waitressing was how people tried to make ends meet.
Annis and her husband make life more bearable by going to the movies once a week. Just from all she has told me, I can tell, that though she talks about all the bad she has experienced, she can see all the little beauties in life.
She couldn’t wait to get back to France.
