6 Weeks of Holidays

I love the French public service! They get 9 weeks of holidays a year, but I didn't think I would be able to take that much, thinking that academics are crazy workaholics all over the world and that surely people here don't take 9 weeks in a year. But I spoke to the administration and my boss and they are happy for me to take 6 weeks over Christmas. So I'm coming home on the 20th of December and I don't leave again until the 3rd of February. Seriously if you can get a job with the French public service, take it!
