Last Friday night, the Husson's invited all of us over for a Lebanese meal. (Nicolas was born and raised in Lebanon, and his parents still live there. He went to France when he was 18 to do his studies).
We had a great meal, with things like Tabouleh, Moussakah, Hommus, etc. But the the interesting thing was that Dave's Dad and Nicolas were trying to talk politics together. Kent only speaks English, Nicolas speaks French and can understand a bit of English, and Dave and I were the translators. Ha ha.
Trying to translate complicated political ideas from English to French with our limited abilities was a real hoot! But we were both really happy that we could at least try without being totally frustrated!
