Paris – Day 2 Part 1

Posted by on August 31, 2007

This morning, I got my wake-up call at 7:45. Luckily, I didn’t have to go with the EF staff to meet the teachers at the airport. Instead, I got to meet them when they arrived here at the hotel. The first group arrived at 9:15, so my morning was off to a leisurely beginning. This is a good thing since my wake-up call was at 12:45 in the morning my time!

Once the teachers arrived, we gave them a bit of info about the day, and then we let them check-in. Shortly, the rest of the group arrived. We got them somewhat settled, then we took them to a shopping mall located within spitting distance of the hotel.

The mall itself is okay, but my favorite two things about it so far are the place where we ate lunch and Auchan. We went to Flunch for lunch. Apparently, many of those who work in this area eat there daily. It is a self-serve type of cafeteria, and the food is pretty good. I didn’t get that adventurous… big surprise, right? I stayed with the pretty safe hamburger steak and some veggies.

After lunch, we walked over to Auchan. For those that might read this before school, tell Mrs. Tidwell we have to check one of these out when we come back in March. Auchan is apparently France’s answer to Wal-Mart! It is pretty cool to walk around and check out all of the different stuff that they have… and all the stuff that is the same. Coke is everywhere, right?

I picked up a couple of things there, but I am sure I will be back. Heck, my mom goes to Wal-Mart daily, so I suppose I need to do the French equivalent!

We are off to spend the rest of the day in Paris…. au revoir!
