Our 4 days in France are at an end. While I look forward to arriving in Spain, there are many things that I will miss about Paris and Amiens. I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour of Paris that Christophe directed, which covered many landmarks (the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame cathedral, and the river Seine) over the course of a day. I also quite liked our interactions with the Amiens students, from talking to them in the classrooms, to eating with them at the family restaurant. The scenery in France was stunning, as well as the architecture in the cities, at times similar to San Francisco, and at others completely alien. People in France were incredibly hospitable to our group, and we reciprocated those sentiments to the fullest. While we may have seemed like “fish out of water” in France, we loved every minute of the experience. Now, we are off to Spain!
We arrived in Sevilla tonight. More tomorrow . . .
