Day 73 – Dinner with more of the family

Another work day, but in the evening Auréle came home with his mom, Yvette, and his brother Loïc. Yvette and I have the honor of being godparents to Zoe, but we must have seen each other ten years ago for the last time, so it was a very pleasant surprise to be able to give her a hug. She has four sons (from older to younger): Alexis, Loïc, Auréle, and Tristán. Alexis works as a journalist for the big weekly newspaper Le Matin Dimanche; Loïc works as manager of several restaurants in Geneva; Auréle is doing an apprenticeship with a company that organizes big events (right now the big one is the European soccer match, Euro 2008, which will be played in August in Switzerland and Austria); and Tristán is an audiovisual artist, working mainly in publicity and marketing.

So the four of us went back to Café de Soleil, the local bistro, which happens to be one of the restaurants that Loïc manages. We are in Switzerland, so of course we had to share a wonderful fondue while catching up on old times.
