January 10: A march and a run

25,000 people showed up to march in homage to the people killed at Charlie Hebdo in Paris – a really considerable number for a smallish town like Nice. It was very moving, and the first time I’ve ever been part of a group that spontaneously started singing La Marseillaise. Good thing I know the chorus… Tomorrow the same route in the opposite direction, the 10k Prom Classic Run, with Joel and Casey.

About Suellen Grealy

In 2011, a series of coincidences led my husband Joel, our cat Ted and me away from London, where we lived quite happily for 30 years, to Nice, where Joel grew up. While he and his sister ran their restaurant, I wrote a novel. Family being family, Joel and his sister no longer work together. Writing being writing, the novel lingers on... Meanwhile, we've found ways of living a completely different life from the one we had in London, including running our own restaurant together, 7 Villermont. The only constants are our Ted, our now-battered Peugeot, and each other. Everything else is a complete surprise

    Perhaps this is reporting the obvious, but events in Paris are pretty much all that’s on the news here as well.
