Hi again! As I am approaching a little over one month of arriving in Aix, I have had so many great adventures, and I have met some friends I will keep for life. I’ve gotten the opportunity to travel to Avignon, Pont du Gard, Monaco and Nice. All of the students went to Avignon the second day of orientation to visit the Cites des Papes and the huge aqueduct, Pont du Gard. The following weekend, my friends and I took a trip to Monaco! We went to Monte Carlo, watched the changing of the guard and explored the city and cathedrals. Last weekend, we were in Nice for the 150th anniversary of Carnaval! There was a huge parade with floats and lots of lights! We also explored the beach during sunset before the parade! These mini excursions are so fun and this coming weekend I will be in the small coastal town of Cassis for a day!
