California/France Swap Complete!

Swap Details:
Swapper1: Charlene California, USA
Swapper2: Emma Lille, France

Original French art goes to California.
A little bit of France came my way yesterday! Some original artwork from Emma, a French postcard, candy (whose wrappers I think I can actually read! Yay, for my high school French!), and, of course, some Nici! Yes, that's a world cup souvenir keychain, and isn't the monkey cute? If you can see the artwork (my other photos aren't very clear), it is entitled, "Nous vous observons: anti-terrorism takes many strange forms." I can't wait for my labmates to come back from the field so that I can share it with them; they'll love it!
These packages have made me remember my romp through Europe a few years back: the beautiful art, delicious food, and amazingly rich cultures. . . .sigh, maybe in an other year or two, I'll be able to make it back again.
Thank you Emma for sharing a little bit of France with a Californian. I hope you like your package as much as I like the one you sent me! As you can see from my picture, Emma's artwork was on exhibit for a few minutes at the Berkeley Art Museum. :)

US friend gets to France.
Charlene's parcel was a little powerhouse of a package but packed with joy. Not everything is in the photo. She made my new purple friend herself, I now know the meaning of someone to hang out with.

Hey umm I didn't find any contact info (and I am in a bit of a hurry so) just wanted to ask why I don't have a "NEW" written after my name on the list though I am new. Thanks.
