Settling In

Well, we were all very luck to have established a cyber-network with each other months before actually meeting. We all feel like we've known each other for years and have established good friendships required to live together and help each other out.
So here is the crew: [left-right: Marcos of Mexico, Ken, Tingting, Hang, Bing [all 4 from China], Alkid from Malaysia]

So, We decided to see the city of Aix-en-Provence a bit in the few free days that we had; we walked around, saw many small roads [that you may even call paths or traces] that cars pass through, and a lot of roundabouts; we ate some Turkish food [see the big rotating junk of meat].

Aix is a nice quite "old" town [no, it's really known as the "old town"]. There days when there are markets or fairs, and days when there are shops on the sidewalk selling tokens: like this colorful array of soaps, at 2 euros per bar, it's no wonder the French don't bathe! They cater more for tourists though.Shopped at a major food store Carrefour [something like Walmart, except humongous]. [notice the frenchy walking across in the left of the picture; i just managed to get her in the picture].

Ah! The cooking of [or trying to cook] the food that we bought [yes, that's what they call our "kitchen"]:
