    You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

    A travel blog entry by slonge on Feb 01, 2015

    ... a long time. But really, the lyrics sum up the way the past two weeks have gone since I was saying goodbye to some kids and saying hello to others.

    Here are the lyrics:

    You say yes, I say no
    You say stop and I say go,

    oh no
    You say goodbye and I say hello
    Hello hello

    I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello,

    Hello hello

    I say high, you say low
    You say why and I say I don't ...

    As Dana and I now both have Fridays off, we decided to go to
    Cognac to see what it was all about. Again, it is just further down the
    Charente river, about an hour from Rochefort. As the name of the city tells
    you, there are many cognac distilleries there. We had planned on going for a

    distilleries were closed to all public and some you had to make a reservation
    to have a tour, ...

    ... to work with them for the whole year. I am lucky though that I get to keep living in Rochefort so I am able to still see them from time to time.

    Caroline and Pauline said that the next dinner we have, we’ll have to have Raclette at Pauline’s place. It’s so nice to be included in people’s lives here. It definitely makes me feel better about being away from home for a few more months. Also, with Lydia and her family and Caroline, I ...
