Xi'an, China and a new start

Xi'an, China and a new start

Before the end of the 2015 schoolyear, I decided to leave Djibouti and its 45°C to pursue other objectives. I asked for a year-off and started packing again. I brought most of my stuff back to my parents' house in France. My mess is accumulating in their attic and my mum is getting annoyed but one day I promise, I will take them back... One day...
Egyptian Food and food in Egypt

Egyptian Food and food in Egypt

If there is one thing that I miss about Cairo, it's its food ! When I was there, a lot of my friends were saying that Egyptian food is a mix of what's in the middle east in general. It is true that one can find there things from Lebanon, from Jordan, from Iran... such as Kofta, Falafel (called Tarmeya in Egypt). I was glad to easily find food in th
Capoeira in Cairo

Capoeira in Cairo

Things were going pretty fast in Cairo. I started working not long after arriving. Found an apartment in Zamalek and started living with two flatmates. But there was something missing... Capoeira ! Before coming, I searched the web to find if in Cairo there were capoeira groups. Unfortunately, the only thing I found was an old group called « Drago
"Djibouti: Siesta-loving nation high on Khat"

"Djibouti: Siesta-loving nation high on Khat"

Khat Leaves I used the title from an article wrote by Janiet Otieno for "Nation Media". I found her title very appropriate when I started looking for information about the use of Khat here. When I arrived in Djibouti, I spent time at the hotel that our school paid for and I was exploring the city with my flatmate and another colleague. When I think
Xining, Qinhai, Zhangye: no sooner did I arrived than a new journey started

Xining, Qinhai, Zhangye: no sooner did I arrived than a new journey started

I arrived in Xi'an mid September 2015 and ten days after Mai's school was already on break. I had to find a job as soon as possible in order to stay but when it comes to traveling and exploring new places, I am always in. One of her colleague, Tony, prepared an itinerary to Qinhai province. He sent us the Lonely planet pdf of China which is very co
AQI or when I'd like to be somewhere else

AQI or when I'd like to be somewhere else

There is one thing I really do not like about living in China, it's the pollution. I really enjoy living in Xi'an but whenever we have to experience the smog and were our ninja masks... it becomes less enjoyable. When you wake in the morning and even inside your apartment there is a smell of something that I would describe like a burn tire smell, i
Kitesurf : a new sport for the PE teacher I am

Kitesurf : a new sport for the PE teacher I am

I decided to work in Djibouti for several reasons. One of them was that I was willing to continue the scuba diving activities organized with my school. Unfortunately, the headmaster did not want to continue it for administrative problems and insurance. Ouch... that was hard for me. However, I got my Advanced Open water certification in Egypt and I
From Cairo to Djibouti… big change… big time !

From Cairo to Djibouti… big change… big time !

Year 2012, I made a decision to leave Cairo for somewhere else. At first, I was looking towards New York for personal reasons. I started sending resume and cover letters to all the French schools in the US coz I didn’t want to limit myself to NYC only. However, in case of a change, I also applied for other French schools abroad : Burkina Faso, Ca
Weird Chinese stuff that I will miss

Weird Chinese stuff that I will miss

In my previous post, I was explaining how pollution and AQI was really annoying. While writing this new post, I was laughing so much while looking at all the pictures I collected during my stay there. If there is something that I will miss after leaving - I am not talking about food - is the crazy stuff that you can see on people's clothes and just
Perfect spot : Moucha and Maskali Islands

Perfect spot : Moucha and Maskali Islands

One of the best thing to do to relax in Djibouti is to go to Moucha and Maskali. Those two wonderful places are small Islands, 30 min away from Djibouti town. That makes them a perfect spot for a day-trip. This is also why sometimes, you will find a lot of people on Fridays (remember here that Friday is a day-off). Unless you have your own motor bo
