phew! It’s been an hour plus and three computers were involved- but! the first round of paperwork for my visa is complete! It might have been done with a chuckle and a fist clenched at the ceiling, ‘ahh you French system!!” and those three computers… one had a video pulled up with step by step instructions (which I was also informed I should print out), the other had the program pulled up, and yet another was used to locate all sorts of random documents needed.

Complete Pastel Registration through Campus France – Done! Now to mail a money order for the $100 fee, and a copy of my Cordon Bleu admittance letter.

ah Paris- I shall dream of you like this, not through silly paperwork.
