Viva la Corsica!



Here I am again: sun, sea, summer, icecream and hotpants. With no doubts this is my favourite time of the year. And I feel lucky that I can find holiday destinations for work. Well, the location where the club is not the nicest part of Bastia but who cares when you can reach la plage in 10 minutes walk. Not white sand like it was in the Caribbean but the water is crystal clear. So however the work is, I'm not going to complain a lot. La vie est belle!
And after Geneva, Luxembourg and Gwada I am again in a French speaker country. Shame on me that I didn't take an effort to learn the language, although I use lots of expressions and I can understand a lot, but the time I spent in these places I should have learnt some French. C'est la vie I guess.. But the truth is I never felt this language is mine. (French kiss oui, any time!)
I'm curious about men in this island. I've heard that they are short tempered (mix the French, Italian and Arab blood and you will see what I mean) and they have the complex of Napoleon (who was born here) as they are shorter than the average. I also heard they are very nationalists and crazy maffia kind of guys (lots of them carry guns but with their short temper I don't think it's a good idea) Well, we will see. But maffia guys can not scared me any more as in Japan I met lots of jakuzas and I know I don't want to mess up with this type. There I had customer who had 3 fingers missing. Between jakuzas cutting the finger is kind of punishment or apologie. He never said anything bad to me but I didn't want to push my boundaries with him either. Being an independent and proud woman doesn't mean I'm looking for trouble. Here I will use the same policy. Better to be safe than sorry.
At least I don't think I will have problems with the girls here. The club is very small and only 3 girls  are working and they seem to be nice. I know one of them from Belgium, we worked together in Antwerp, hmm... 3 years ago. It's funny, you know you spent too much time in this business when you go to a new place and there you meet someone you have worked with in another club, another country. It happened in Luxembourg where I met a girl that I know from Belgium too, or in Gwada where I met a French girl and before we also worked together in Geneva. Yes, it's true, the world is too small.
And I definitely won't have problem with the food here. I can survive on crepe till the end of my staying here! :)

Now bon nuit everyone, a tout a l'heure!
