évreux. my new home for a good 7 months. I found out about two weeks ago, and of course I have done as much cyber stalking as possible, trying to learn more about my future home. and so, here are the things google has shown me about évreux!
close to paris, but not too close! far from paris, but not too far! if i need an escape, paris is right there! yay! and i can also escape the other direction to beaches and waves and saltwater, yes yes yes! (source)
it definitely is not a tourist stop. which is good, more french practice for me! another sign is that the tripadvisor évreux forum has zero posts. nada. nobody is asking questions or even considering going! except me, of course. (source)
50,000 sounds like a lot until I compare it to the places I live now. and also UT has 50,000 students. my university is the same size as évreux! i’m so tickled by that idea. (source)
then I hopped to youtube… first up, a strike. (source)
then some riots… (source)
a teen steals a moped and hits a child… (source)
okay, so youtube is not a good intro to évreux. moving on!
it has lighted walk paths! (source)
and typing “évreux” in flickr brings up nice things. like this lovely picture.(source)
and a bridge. (source)
there were a ton of concert shots. (source)
puffy clouds, best thing ever. (source)
they give us beef, cheese, milk, yogurt… how i love them! (source)
i’m going to guess that these are streetlamps. (source)
can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait to start this new experience! and i of course can’t wait until I can show pictures that I make, instead of scouring the internet for them. no more googling for me, i don’t want to “spoil” all the surprises of évreux by finding out and seeing everything beforehand!
