First week in Paris

Bonjour tout le monde! Je m’appelle Katie. Je suis dans ma troisième année de l’université, et mes spécialités sont la physique, la neurologie, et le français. Cette semaine nous sommes retournés à Paris pour la partie la plus longue du semestre. Pour deux mois, nous habiterons et étudierons à Paris, avec les familles d’accueil que nous avons rencontré dimanche.

Classes started on Monday, with French Theatre and Art and Architecture, and continued until Thursday with France in Europe and the World, Immigrant Cinema, and Language and Society. As we settle back into classes after our vacations, we are also getting to know Paris. It’s such a huge city, and there are so many things to do that it can be a little overwhelming at times, in a good way. After our first full week here, I’m sure we’re all excited to further explore Paris.

The week concluded Saturday with an Eid lunch at the home of one of Karim’s cousins. The food was absolutely delicious, and there was so much of it, even the relatively large group of us couldn’t finish all of it.
