Anyone in from Tarpoli - er Bulle?

(The fall and rise of Reggie Perin)

Hi,
I'm a Brit in Bulle, Fribourg. It would be nice to hear from anybody nearby (or further afield). I've lived abroad, in Europe, since '89 and am here with my two young sons for a while.
If anybody would like to play squash during the day, I'd be delighted to hear from you. I speak reasonable French and we've been here a while, but don't have many local friends.

I'm a scientist, but currently busking as a freelance writer and editor - should anybody need one!

Mike

Hi,
It's quiet, but a very pleasant spot. We came here for my wife's job in '09, but she died unexpectedly a few months ago. I will finish the school year with the boys and then move on, I think. They are in school locally and have a network of friends - which is essential right now. Where are you from?

My monsters are pretty young - is it lively in the afternoon?
What part of Belgium are you from? I did my doctorate in Ghent back in the mists of time...

Re: Anyone in from Tarpoli - er Bulle?

i'm sorry to hear about your wife
i'm from Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen, it's not so far from Ghent (but everything in Belgium is closeby)
you've really moved a lot, haven't you? i'm hoping to do that one day and see a part of the world... where are you planning to go next?
Anthony1406, i've never noticed any foreigners in Le Buro! i should go more often...

Thanks.
When the wheels of UN justice finally grind (and this is their second chance...) I fully expect to rejoin the empire of evil in Vienna. If all works out, I should be back there in the autumn. We still have a number of friends in and around Vienna and at least I can play squash!

We are pretty close - I think Marsens is the next town (well...) across the fields from here.

Got to pick the boys up from Rock Danse... tot strachs (?)

Le Buro is also popular with some of the students from GIHE nearby.

I'm a student at GIHE, not really too keen on the environment, but it's what you get for attending such an international school. There's a lot of students from other countries here in Bulle for that reason.
