First Trip into Paris (alternatively, Doing Something Touristy)

That’s what we call cla$$, my friends

At some point in my year in Paris, I’ll probably/hopefully/maybe graduate from doing tourist-y things. However, drinking wine on the Seine is something that I doubt I’ll get tired of. 

The schools in Sèvres had a small picnic for the schoolchildren and their families on Sunday–small meaning only about 700 people were invited. Of course, all the families with au pairs used this as an opportunity to socialize us. I’ll admit it was nice to spend some time with native English speakers, even if half of them were from the U.K. and half were from Canada, and only one other American (!) so our English was a bit different 😉 It was quite interesting to hear about their backgrounds and decisions to be au pairs: most are between high school and college/university (see what I mean about the different English?) and one girl is taking a year off from jockey school! 

A few of us ventured into Paris after the picnic to do some exploring, and although I’ve already forgotten which Métro stops I’m supposed to take to school, we had a nice time, wandering around and stumbling upon the Lock Bridge and the Louvre. After so much walking we agreed that wine on the Seine was the ONLY option to quench our thirst and rest. Next time: cheese and baguettes to go with the wine!
