Hello to ex-pats in France
I am writing from the Spanish Pyrenees so not so far from France - Catharine suggested I look to the forumites for help!
My 14 year old (and very brave) daughter will be studying in Argelés Gazost near Lourdes from September onwards and I would dearly like to get to know anyone in the vicinity. Is there anyone out there? I have an ulterior motive; my daughter needs a "famille correspondant" during her year at high school, and while I understand the school will hep if necessary, it is really up to us to make the first moves. Anyone willing to take her on (she's lovely by the way ....) would act as a kind of surrogate family by inviting her for the odd meal, helping out now and again and being on hand for emergencies. There is no obligatory involvement, it's just having someone closer than we are.
As a family, we would be very willing to reciprocate should there be anyone wanting to experience Spanish life, be it on a holiday basis or some kind of exchange.
I appreciate France is huge, but if there is anyone near Argelés Gazost, please get in touch!
Many thanks in advance. Kathy
