The programme d’invitation des personnalités d’avenir and moi!

For the first time in years, the person running the Programme d’invitation des personnalités d’avenir at the Quai d’Orsay in Paris –thanked the Embassy in Manila for sending them such an excellent candidate, the Embassy’s first counselor said to me over lunch Wednesday. “I don’t know what you did there,” he said in jest.”Did you seduce her?” How very French, that, and certainly worth a good laugh, even if untrue.
