Week Two: Trip to Toulouse!
It's hard to believe that week two is over! It's going by very quickly. My second week was quite interesting. I started my two History classes and Sociology class on Monday and I'm looking forward to each of them. French class on Tuesday was a bit stressful. On our first day of class the professor told us that after day one she would only speak to us in French during class. Day three on Thursday proved to be easier since I started to understand basic words.
As for Toulouse on Wednesday, I was blown away by the amazing atmosphere of the city! I've never seen anything like it! Everything from the buildings to shopping and food was absolutely out of this world! We left at about 8:30am and arrived at about 10am, then the non stop touring starting! We ventured from tight underground parking to museums and Cathedrals! There was hardly anytime to take pictures since we were moving so quickly. Lunch was our only down time and we had about an hour before we had picked ourselves up to continue on with the sight seeing! I was told that I would be seeing several Historic sites, but I'm absolutely amazed by how many sites I've seen in just two weeks!
Although its only been two weeks, I already I wish I had done this sooner! I implore students to take advantage of the program if they have the opportunity.
