This is a picture of one of my last sights of the US for three and a half months. A fact that I haven't adjusted to yet. I'll let you know when that happens!
After two flights and two broken nails, I made it to Aix-en-Provence, France, the place I will call my home for the next several months. My host, Mme Creisson, met me at the airport in Marseille and drove me to her apartment where I will be staying. Mme Creisson is very sweet and I feel lucky to have her as my host. Also, she speaks English quite well which is saving me since my French is a tad rusty since I haven't had a class in a year. She showed me how to walk to my school in town. Along the way, we saw two brides on their way to the cathedral which is near my school. I learned from my host that you know it is a wedding when you see ladies wearing hats! It made me think of the royal wedding. I guess that is something France and England have in common. Soon, I will be on my way to a open house at my school. It is a chance to meet the staff and other students. I'll let you know how it goes!
P.S. Here's a picture from my room! I'm spoiled.
