I am so terribly sorry that I have no posted recently! Everything has been a little crazy here!
On Wednesday I got to visit the city of Reims, which was destroyed in the war. Because if that everything is newer and it is not your typical French style. Everything was super expensive and it was not my favourite. Phillippe and I visited Danielle in the hospital and it was nice to see her.
On Friday I went for lunch at a Rotary members house and it was really nice to be out of school for the afternoon. It’s nice to talk to different Rotary members about home, school and things that I want to do while in France.
Saturday was free chateau day in France, so Phillippe and I visited two different chateau’s. They were beautiful. It’s hard to believe that people actually lived/live in them. Here are a few pictures from our adventure.
Today I woke up to the sound of rain which made me want to crawl back into bed. After getting ready, a Rotary member picked me up and we headed for a vineyard just outside of Sezanne. After about five minutes of cutting grapes, the excitement wore off, I was cold, wet and disappointed. I am glad that I had the opportunity to do grape cutting though, and it is something I will never forget! The president of our club, personally invited me to come back to help next year. I declined nicely.
On Thursday I am giving a speech to the district governor of Rotary, and on Saturday I am meeting with the exchange students in my district. I am super excited.
I will try to update you all more frequently,
