Bonjour from Paris! I have just a bit of time to write before the day begins, so let me try to fill y'all in on the adventure so far -
We have been here since early Tuesday morning. We arrived without incident from Atlanta, all tired but excited to be here. We walked around the Jardins de Luxembourg and Saint Sulpice Tuesday afternoon, a short walk from our hotel in the Latin quarter. Our hotel is very nice; breakfast (which I just ate!) is delicious - fresh baguettes and croissants every morning! I enjoy coming down early and doing a bit of reading while drinking some hot tea, and occasionally looking out the window with a shock of realization that I'm actually in PARIS.
Wednesday we walked ALL over the city. Literally, I think we walked about 10 miles.
Yesterday some people went to Versailles, but I decided to skip that since I had been previously and was quite tired. Instead, I shopped for a French cell phone! It was very exciting because I actually went into the store and asked all the questions and stuff by myself in french, and had the pleasant realization that I can actually communicate!!! :) Afterwards, I met up with others at the Louvre, and we spent several hours there looking at beautiful artwork.
Got to run - others need the one computer we have here in the hotel! Love you all!
