First off, Samad pointed out I were leaving détails out, Torchy secunded him. Well, to your disappointment I am as reclusive as Torchy, but a bit lesser conservateur. Despite that, Val´s parents had agreed that he came w/us. Rafiq is a lebanese student in Paris, his family in Lebanon can be found on Wikipedia. Have fun searching! He is a friend-friend of mine, not an euphemism friend as Val. And then, english parents are maybe a bit more de rigeur than french in regard of parental education. At last, who has the words of Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood in his coat of arms? England? Laters Pilgrim...p.s., this was not the post I intended to txt. Anyway, here you go!...p.p.s.s.,, don´t mix Rafiq withe late lebanese Prime Minister of the same first name. :-)He is way christian, the latter was a muslim.
