The mayor’s postcard

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We got a postcard on Friday from the mayor that said Meilleurs Voeux 2017 that we might otherwise recognize as Best Wishes for the new year. On the other side of the card that you see here is his greeting wishing us a happy new year and thanking us for our confidence in him and in our city. In all of the places that we’ve lived, I don’t remember ever getting a card like this before—a tax bill, jury duty summons, or a zoning change, sure, but nothing nice like this. Looks like 2017 is getting off to a great start in Carcassonne!

While living in North, Central and South America, in the middle of the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, and now in Europe, my passion has remained the same: travel and meeting new friends.

  2. The card is lovely. In my little town, the mayor has invited everyone to a kind of best wishes ceremony on the 14th January at 15h, followed by galette des rois for all! It should be fun.
