  • 48 - Can You Drive?

    05/09/2020 Duration: 21min

    Bonjour, tout le monde! I am FINALLY back after a LONG leave! I hesitated for a very long time to post this episode all around driving because it was to be published around the same week the #blacklivesmatter movement started. Because this story is set in Africa and sheds a bit of a "funny" light on African ways, I wasn't sure I should publish it. However, this is my story, it happened over 15 years ago and I can't say for how things are now. I hope you will enjoy it for what it is: a personal little story all around driving. It is in no way my intention to hurt or offend anyone with this episode. // Full transcription is available on my website thefrenchcompass.com. // On a side note: can you tell I paid someone to do the editing, mixing and mastering of this week's episode? I'm honestly facepalming over not having done this sooner to spare your ears. My takeaway: stick to what you do best and let others do the rest! Have a wonderful weekend, the sun is still shining behind the rain clouds. Lisiane

    Dear all, I'm truly sorry not to have an episode for you this week. I was hoping to get one out but I got ill and at the same time I have my hands full getting ready for a couple of major life changes taking place in the next few days and weeks - which I will tell you more about when things have settled. So, that's why I haven't had the time to create an episode. I hope to be back soon and wish you a lovely week. Oh, and I hope to have the Christmas audiobook out this coming week. I will keep you posted. Thanks for journeying along, I love having you "around". Lisiane
