she got married to a dude who had been in Afghanistan..
he worked for air France at Paris airport..
i wanted to prepare all my Africa visa's for different countries..

I've always loved Paris..big city with lots of charm..
I easily found Cathy's adress..got my own key..to get in even..
nice little flat..she loved Crosby,Stills,Nash&Young..
now Paris..is allright..but it involved subway travell..
i visited embassies of Senegal and Mali..
and got info on vendange...vendange is grape picking..
i got an adress in Beaujolais regio..Chiroubles..
and Cathy told me..leave your stuff here in Paris..
and go and earn some extra money in the vendange..
so I did..I left Paris...after 6 days..reached Dijon the first day..
and Chiroubles the next day..the vineyard owner payed 35 FF=
French francs+3 meals a day+1 bottle of wine+free sleeping..
I left my passport in Paris..I did not need a passport for France..
I will tell you all how grape picking is done..and what happened..
