Blog : Goyavier dans loisirs

Française de l'île de la Réunion, je vis aux Etats-Unis. Mon blog fait part de ma perspective de Française expatriée sur des sujets aussi divers que l'art, les affaires, le jardinage, les gens intéressants, les reportages insolites, les voyages, les bonnes choses à manger, etc. Ce blog est écrit en langue anglaise, et donc parfait pour celles qui veulent perfectionner leur anglais tout en buvant leur Ricoré. A bientôt sur mon blog! Catherine PS: si une expression anglophone vous laisse perplexe, n'hésitez pas à me le signaler. Je vous répondrai!
