Katie Lodge


I'm from Devon, England. It's part of a shrinking island not too far from Europe, where tea and back-patting solve everyone's problems. I've been in Lyon for 15 years now, and problems are solved by visiting a local psychologist or by joining a trade union. I teach English, translate and write about goldfish, among other things. The Average Individual is a weeklyish post with reflections on people and culture, from tarte tatin to terrorism.
