…and he just smiled. I was so startled when he walked in, the photo didn’t focus correctly. I half expected him to yell at be afterwards, but he just passed by me. All the photos I’ve taken so far have been in secret when I’m alone. It’s not a crime and I’m definitely not taking pictures of super “important” things, but some chefs don’t like it. At my last stage, we were never given the space to take or even ask to take photos. One time, one of the stagiaires asked the chef de partie if she could snap a photo of the display case that we had worked on during the day and he said to take it quickly before the chef came back. I just assumed that most establishments were that way and that this restaurant was no exception, but I guess I was wrong. Because I was so scarred once, it’s hard to believe that this stage is going to be so much better and that the people are going to continue to treat me with decency, but it’s slowly getting there. However, I’m still going to refrain from taking pictures out in the open…for now.

So, why did I come to the states so suddenly? My sister is getting married! The wedding is next fall, but there’s so much planning to do my family thought it would be nice to have me around to help out. I don’t know how much help I was in the end, but I’m convincing myself that just my presence was of great moral support.
