On Friday (4/13) night, Alison came over after she'd finished with classes. I left her with Jessie and I headed over to say goodbye to my folk dance group. They weren't having a dance practice, they were preparing for a fund raiser that they were putting on during the weekend. It was basically a giant BINGO night--but with over 400 people! And they were preparing the snacks that they were planning to sell (crêpes and merveilles)-- I have never seen so much crêpe batter at once!

When we returned to Tyrosse, I wanted to stop at the folk dance group's BINGO fundraiser--just to see what it was. It was really ironic, though, because it was a Sunday night...I arrived at the train station...then walked over to the covered market...and the folk dance group was there for their BINGO night... it was JUST like the very first night when I arrived in Tyrosse! Except (as they pointed out) I wasn't crying and lost this time! Haha!
Sunday evening we were invited to dinner at Bruno and Françoise's house! It was a lovely dinner party---Ralf, Catherine, Isabelle, Hélène, and Pablo were there as well. We were there for about 5 hours and the conversation was lively and interesting the whole time!

I will really miss these people. They are all so kind and funny and I feel really comfortable around them now. Perhaps I'll have to come back for a visit... :)
At the end of the night, Bruno and Françoise were nice enough to offer to drop Jessie and I at the Biarritz airport on Monday so we could catch our flight to London.
