Hey Jack! Saw that you are new to the Older and Bolder group. Welcome! I am a newbie as well. Not ready to begin working the National Parks yet, as I have about 4 years to go before I retire. Since you've lived in France, you must speak French. I speak German. Good luck finding a summer position. Keep us posted on what you find and on your experiences.  I need all the advice I can get when I start looking.
