Raphael, aka Rapha, is a French friend from Bordeaux who I met while working at Exmouth Coffee Company.
He is very chilled out and we exchanged language knowledge: he helped with my French and I helped him with his English.
 
One of the things I most cherish from those lessons are all the Cool French expressions he taught me, most related to just keeping it cool. Very much like Rapha. 
 
Cool Raoul
Tranquille Emile
A l'aise Blaise
Relax Max
 
and they all rhyme :)
