This short humoristic text expresses the gratitude of its author towards the team of the EGPA/IIAS for having entrusted him twice with the responsibility of welcoming avè plaisir (with great pleasure) the EGPA Annual Conference, in 2010 and 2015, in the radiant rose-brick city of Toulouse. Both the former capital of Languedoc with a rich cultural heritage from the Roman Empire and the Visigoths, and the present European capital of aeronautics and space industries (Airbus, EADS-Arianespace, Thalès), Toulouse is also the second university city in France after Paris, and thus an ideal place to host high-level scientific events, in a warm atmosphere.
