parlez-vous français?

au revoir - pronounced "oh rev war", translates roughly "until we see each other again". the french use this to say good-bye.
while most of you most likely already know this phrase, it's appropriate this week as my brother's girlfriend gracie left the states last night to fly to paris for the summer. she's staying at a friends house near the arc de triomphe. when gracie offered to help with the chores and such to earn her keep she was informed "that's what the maids are for". she has a french class three days a week and otherwise no responsibilities.

an amazing summer in a paris apartment with maids and lots of time to wander narrow streets and drink cafe au lait in tiny cafés? je suis jalouse!
au revoir et bon voyage, gracie!
