“turn and face the strain” sings David Bowie in his brilliant Changes song. And, indeed, that’s what I did. Changes were set upon me recently, and that’s why this blog didn’t have the attention it deserves lately.
I got a new job in Paris starting on the 1st July as a web development consultant working for a large client in the financial area. The work is demanding, but fits well in my experience and knowledge, even though I come from an education background. I’m learning a lot from the experience, since it’s the first time I’m working for a large corporation and have the change to liaise with people much more knowledgeable in the are than myself.
What is mind-boggling, in reality, is how difficult it turn out to be to find a place to live in Paris. The city is crowded and the real estate is really scarce and expensive, and even trying to get any responses from people who advertise seems to be a case of extreme luck.
Oh well, all will be solved in due time.
