My First Sip of Champagne

Yesterday I attended my first Rotary meeting, which was held at the Aero Club of Sezanne. I went into two different small airplanes, and took amazing pictures of my town and of Sezanne. I met all of the members of the Sezanne Rotary Club, who are all very nice. They are all very impressed by my French, and said that it is really good. I have a different opinion about that though. I met my next host family and their daughter who is 10, and I am looking forward to living with them. Before dinner some Rotary members asked if I had tried the Champagne yet and before I could even say no, I had a glass in my hand. When I sipped it, I felt like spitting it out but,I did not and I made a face in which everyone laughed. It burned my throat. The Rotary meeting was very long, it started at around 5:45 and ended at 11pm. Next week I will be attending another meeting and will give a short speech about myself. 

Tomorrow I am going to Paris with my host family. I am very excited to finally see it. Next weekend I am going to stay with a Rotary member because my host parents are going on a bus trip to Northern France. Saturday evening Willy will be picking me up and then on Sunday morning we will be going to Euro Disney for the day.

I have a very busy week ahead of me and I hope that it goes by fast. I am still jet-legged and do not fall asleep until very late and I wake up very early with only a few hours of sleep. I hope that my schedule returns to normal before I start school on Wednesday.

Here are a few pictures from yesterday while flying.
