Bonjour Paris!

Hello from Paris! Our feet didn’t stop moving for long when we got here last night. We had an incredible dinner last night that included a chocolate lava cake with some very rich dark chocolate exploding out of the cake. It was fantastic!

Student embarked out into the city last night in groups of 4 or more. Many went to see the Eiffel Tower at night and were so excited to see it all lit up. What a great start to our time in Paris. This morning we had a hearty breakfast at the hotel and took a metro ride (x2) to get to the Louvre. We had excellent guides, so knowledgeable and engaging.  We saw some wonderful pieces of art including: Venus de Milo, The Winged Victory of Samothrace (Goddess of Victory, aka Nike) and of course, the Mona Lisa! We couldn’t possibly see it all, it would take 200 days, non-stop to see all the art pieces there!  After the tour students had a couple hours to go in groups of four to explore the city and find lunch before each having class this afternoon.

Tomorrow there is an optional excursion to the Palace of Versailles. Other students will have some free time to catch up on work or sleep but most likely they will be venturing out to see beautiful Paris!

Take care back home in Canada,
