De retour de l’est

Bonjour à tous,

Après mon retour d’Istanbul, il y a un mois, je reprends une série de posts dans le blog. Je prévois une courte série, peut-être 10 ou 12 articles, pour raconter des histoires sur mon séjour dans l’ancienne Constantinople, et le voyage de retour.

Pour commencer, je partage les images vidéos, deux films de 8 et 12 minutes.

François

Direction Istanbul à vélo

François came to Neuchâtel in the 1990s. He worked here and moved back and forth to Montpellier, although he likes Aix-en-Provence better. In 2016 he started looking for a new apartment and in the end he took the room I was about to leave.

When I came back, one year ago, we became part-time flatmates. He, like Jean Thomas, was away most of the time; but the few days we spent together were good. He is calm, thoughtful, youthful, curious, careful. When I think of him I think of expensive mattresses, verbena, sheeps, maps, and big white afro hair on a white man.

François left Neuchâtel in June last year. He has now embarked on new projects. One of these is a long ride from Montpellier to Istanbul. It began already a week ago and you can follow his steps on his new blog. Daje François.

 

Post scriptum. Before publishing this blogpost I asked him consent: Si il y a que des gentils comme Elie, Marco, Jean-Thomas, les filles allemandes, alors ça va!
