François Galas Class of 1984
My name is François Galas and I'm a graduate of AES Class of 1984. I heard of your website by Fabien Tabarly (Class of 1985), who regularly visits your site.
A little bit of history (and geography):
I arrived in 1980 in New Delhi and was, as far as I know, the first French citizen at AIS/AES!
After 1984, I went back in France, my country. I did my last year of French high school and graduated (again).
Then, I went in Switzerland to do what I longed for: a Swiss Hotel School of Managment.
After a few years of wandering => (Cruise liners in the Carribbean, waiter in Spain, Restaurant Manager around France ..) I joined a firm specialized in Food Management in private clinics based in Angoulême, France, as West France Director.
During that period I managed to get married and have 3 boys (7, 9 & 12). (Visibly, we did not get the recipe to do girls...)
In a few months, I'll join a another company (industrial dry cleaning) based in Montpellier (situated the south of france => sea, scuba diving and sun).
Well, all that is left to say are the memories. I will never forget our discussions with Mrs. Walker in social studies; my "A" in English, given to me by Mrs. Mennard (in desperation?); the hard (if not impossible?) work of Dr. Beck (whom I did not really help); the smoker's bench; girlfriends; friends; senior trips; Robert Connor and his slight ignorance of rugby rules; the fire in Mr. Kumar's trash can ... and so on during four hard and long years (sic) ....
Anyhow, being my first contact, can you:
PS. I am especialy looking for two brothers : Alec ('83) and Porter ('85) Dewar.
