I met some of the friends I have known the longest and am closest to during my Junior Year in France in 1968 and 1969. We still visit each other as often as we can and enjoy traveling together in France.

My Junior Year Group (Bonnie, Dan and Lois, as well as Cheryl and Eric) spent late September 1998 together in Provence and on the Riviera.
For our official birthday dinner together, we went to the 2-star restaurant of Jacques Maximin in the chef's house outside of Vence. We took these pictures near the end of the meal.

Lois Gorrell in a restaurant in Cagnes-sur-Mer telling us about their visit to Gourdon. Since her audience was by then all aged 50, she thought it was best to bring along a postcard of the hilltop village as a visual aid.
