activities during the day, such as observing in the local schools and meeting French students, and being welcomed by the Mayor of Saint Jean de Braye. We then had the nights and weekends free with out host families. Most activities involved touring and sightseeing. We visited castles like Versailles and Chambord. We also visited the historic city of Orleans, the perfume factory ,Christian Dior, biked along the Loire river and spent time in the town of Saint Jean de Braye where our host lycee was located. Our time with the families was spent relaxing and experiencing life in France such as eating lots of cheese and organ meats.
The last 3 days in France were spent in Paris. While in the city, we visited many famous sites and monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe , the Louvre, and Notre Dame to name a few. The trip was a lot of fun, we learned a lot of French and made new friends and rekindled acquaintences of some of the students who traveled to Everest the previous year. This trip will always be remembered.
