There were 5 apprentices and the coiffeuse (the owner of the salon) working on my hair at the same time. It took 4 hours to do...which isn't bad at all. My cousins brought lunch to the salon for

When I got home the family was "fete-ing" (celebrating), by drinking sodas (an expensive luxury here). My sister had gotten the results of the exam she had taken. She's going into High School; to get there, everyone has to pass a 3 or 4-day exam. She had done very well...I don't know her score, but everyone was very very pleased. She's smart, so I'm sure she scored high.
