The Paris alumni group has grown increasingly active over the past two years, with its second annual Escalade Dinner taking place on Friday 2 December 2016. Karin Hervieu-Causse (LGB '78) kindly organized once again and she sent us this report.


"We gathered at the iconic Hôtel du Nord, where, in the eponymous 1938 film by Marcel Carné, French star Arletty hits back at her partner Louis Jouvet with this cult phrase : « Atmosphère, atmosphère …!! »

Well, in the December night a very different atmosphere filled the air... A very cosy setting and a bunch of Ecolinters coming together for our second Escalade dinner.

Most of us had met last year and it was great to realize how much everybody had been looking forward to the evening. We also warmly welcomed 'newcomers' Miki Nitadori and Bob Preston and guest Patrick Reynolds.

We definitely enjoyed our Escalade celebration at the Hôtel du Nord and yes, loved the smashing of the marmite while shouting « Ainsi périrent les ennemis de la république !! »"
