  1. Deborah,
    I still think that it takes lots of courage to make such a radical change in a life.
    I have been to the south of France many times and I think I understand your love of the country.
    For now, because of the health situation, I am just hoping that I will be able to return, next spring !
    Have a great summer with all that France has to offer !
    Is it possible to know when the second part of the interview will be ready ?
    Thank you,
