Chris & I went to the French Consulate's office today to get our visas (2nd time there). We made it through most of the steps until the very end and found out we needed to (a) provide them with an address of where we will be staying and (b) give them a copy of my last banking statement. Chris was not told by the embassy that we would need either of these things, so we had no idea. The address is problematic since we are still apartment shopping. We still have time to get the visas though. Once we go back with those documents, it will only be a 1/2 hour before we have our visas in hand.
Speaking of apartment shopping, Chris & I have been searching online. We have found a few prospective places through Century 21 Marseille (they speak English!). I have no doubt that we will find a place.
We are also in the midst of planning our Bon Voyage Party in Indiana. The date is set for Sept 13th. More details to come.
Our flights are booked, so we at least have that! :)
