Thursday, the Alliance Française in Costa Rica threw a year-end party for all the French students - what a blast! Everyone was "encouraged" (we weren't *actually* threatened) to dress up as something that started with either "A" or "F" - in French, bien sûr!
Then the students had a little "show" and contest - the "artichoke / artichaut" won for the "A's"
I went as "l'Abondance," and carried a jazzed-up cornucopia, wore a harvest crown, and (of course!) carried a glass of wine! :-)
My teacher and her fiancé came as a flower and martial artist...
Le Monastère. Sounds like I'd better pass my finals...
