french thoughts

my program is telling me that i don't need a visa. considering that automatic tourist visas only last for 3 months and this program is 8 months, that seems a little sketch. also, a few days ago taking dog seemed like a reasonable plan. right now, not so much. on the one hand, french folks love dogs and there's not much red tape getting her in. on the other hand, long flight, probably tiny apartment, desire to do weekend trips. I really like her, but I don't think you can actually bring dogs in supermarkets and cafes, can you? Also, Cola's parents could put her up. She'd have an acre to run (vs studio apt) and three other dogs. but . . . but . . . but . . . oy, i really like having a dog.

the visa thing also seems suspicious to me. why not just get a student visa to be safe?

as for the dog, just to offer my opinion... it's probably better to board her with cola's parents. i think you /can/ bring dogs into at least some cafes -- in fact i'm fairly sure of it -- unless the laws have changed, which seems unlikely -- but i don't think i've seen them in grocery stores (do you really need to take your dog to the grocery store, though?)... also, tiny apt aside, are dogs really happy in cities? i don't really know.
