Sister Cities Visit from the people of Sevres, France to Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA in 2009

Our relationship with individuals from Sevres, France began with their visit in 2009.  Jacques and Danielle were guests in our home for the week they were in Mount Prospect.  Jacques speaks English well so communication was good.  I speak a little French and understand more than I can speak.  We had many things in common, grown children close in age, a long term marriage and grandchildren.    We all enjoyed good wine and good food.  There was a great generosity of spirit and fun in our relationship.  Danielle and I also shared a love of cats.  We had a kitty and they have a great cat as well.
