French keyboard

Ya my pday is on monday. i'm typing on a french keyboard so if i spell things wrong; that's why. it's terrible. my conpanion is native and i told hi, like 8 times that i needed to email, yes i told hi, that in french, and he just kept cleaning and saying "nous devons laver notre appartemente" (google translate: "we wash our apartment :) but oh well. he is a lot of fun. the first time he spoke i coukdn't understand a single word. not even kidding. I thought there was no WAY this was french... and when we first drove up to the apartment, elder legere said, this has to be a joke...

it(s such a different world. everyone is so nice though. I only have three minutes left. this keyboard will take some getting used to. We washed our clothes by hand yesterday. that was fun. pretty sure they're dirtier then before i washed the, but whatev.
I GOTTA GO!!! tons of BMW and Mercedes

love ya
