Hey all (not to be confused with hey y’all, I may be a southern belle from KY at heart, I will not resort to using southern slang): Scuba Marseille is interesting.

Tiny steps in the right direction!

I have had some small victories over the past 24 hours…here they are… My advisor here at the lab mentioned a series of chamber concerts that happen in Marseille and there was one last night. Not just any concert either, a CLARINET concert! Famous French Clarinetist Paul Meyer was in Marseille and played some amazing … Continue reading
