It's crazy to think that I've lived in France for 6 months now! Wow. It's been a wild adventure, and I've loved sharing our journey with you all.
I don't have many new updates today, but did include a lot of pictures I've taken recently. Enjoy!
My French classes are coming to an end! My last class is tomorrow and I have two days of testing in July. It's been a long journey and the hours have been crazy so I'm excited to have a little time off to review my MANY notes, and also relax a bit! In the fall, I plan to find another organization so that I can continue taking more classes.
Here are some pictures from a trip my class took together around the city:
"Fete De La Musique"
In July I begin touring two kids in English. I'm hoping to eventually begin doing this often, for all ages, so this is going to be my "practice run." :)
"Musee Des Confluences"
My French class also took a trip to this popular museum in Lyon. It's super cool!
*I LOVE ice but French people (& I think Europeans in general) aren't big on ice. It doesn't always come with your drinks in restaurants and when it does, it's just a few ice cubes. I miss getting a glass full of ice when I eat out! Will's family also thinks I'm weird when I chew/crunch ice. There also are no free-refills!
*Fresh bread is my new favorite smell. I love walking into grocery stores or just walking past bakeries and smelling the fresh bread. SO GOOD!
*Whenever we go to Will's basketball games, the food they serve is a sandwich with butter and one slice of ham. That's a new one for me but apparently not totally uncommon here.
*Grocery stores don't have grocery bags, so you have to always bring your own.
*If you ask for tea, know that what you're really getting is peach tea. It's super delicious but strange when you're expecting just regular sweet tea.
My Youtube Channel
I just uploaded my first ever youtube video! Will & I take a lot of video clips on our GoPro so I'm excited to begin sharing them with you. Our first video is up. Check it out:
