Last weekend in Paris

We took a class trip to Versailles on Wednesday. It was so beautiful!

After our class session, we rented bikes and biked around the pond, which was massive. I had not ridden a bike in years, and I felt like a kid again.

Also, I am really excited for this weekend. My friends and I are going to Euro Disney and shopping. There are student prices for Euro Disney, and we are going to stay all day on Friday. Also, the big sales are this week, so we are going to find every cheap place in Paris. That sounds like tons of fun, but we also have to prepare for our finals next week!

I can’t believe we are almost done with our trip! I do miss the States, especially when I hear Europeans reciting U.S. history, but I am truly enjoying it here.

My friends and I were just talking about how we are going to go through almost culture shock going back to the States. We have been so used to taking public transportation everywhere that we might feel awkward in cars by ourselves. Also, we won’t see flower shops on every corner, or a pastry shop either. And I can’t imagine what 100 degrees feels like, since the highest it has been is 80; however, we don’t have air conditioning so it would be unbearable otherwise.

I have to go so I can make my last weekend here a memorable one!
