Just great! It has not really snowed much this winter but the day I had to go over the Juras to Bourg-en-Bresse it just had to start to snow, heavily. Luckily I made it to the meeting I had with three(!) minutes to spare despite abysmal road conditions.
At least everything seemed to go well and it seems like I do not have to go back to the prefecture again with another bunch of papers nor to pick up my drivers license. According to the information I was given my new French drivers license, replacing my Swedish one, will be sent to me in about two weeks time. One has to appreciate the small favors in life I guess.
