We saw our friends Paige & Barry on Thursday for one last hurrah.  They have been really good friends to us: they sent us food when we were stranded and starving in Virginia, warm clothes when I was freezing in Virginia…they are the kind of people who do things just because they are the right thing to do, and are good friends regardless of how good of a friend you are in return.  They are also really fun, and Jake & I like them a lot.  Hopefully they will join us in Marseille very soon, but we will miss them in the meantime.
