A girl fell off her razor scooter and started meditating.

A little Paris and a lot of Bruges 063So I am in Paris right now. And basically, it’s a wonderful city full of beatuiful people and razor scooters. Today was the first day of the art history class. Everything is really interesting and everyday our lectures are at different sites. Today we were at The Louvre. Whiles there I wandered into the room with The Mona Lisa, but our lecture was in the gothic sculpture room and objet d’art section. We have a lecture later this week at Notre Dame. I am completely forgetting about the papers I need to be writing. It’s hard to study while you’re so focused on exploring a new city.

This weekend we went to Bruges, Belgium. We had originally planned to go to Brussels (thank you for the suggestion not to, Kelly. We loved Bruges!) The city was wonderful. It was so picturesque and quaint. I bought a lot of chocolate and ate a lot of waffles. I have been eating a few Croque Monsieurs in France and Belgium. They are basically a a ham and Cheese sandwich with an egg on top. Delicious.

Here is a picture from Bruges:

The only Michaelangelo sculpture outside of Italy. This is in The Church of Our Lady. Very cool.

Belgian Waffle--Yes that's chocolate syrup in that little dish.

Pictures do not do it justice--it's such a cute city!

I had my first experience in a hostel. It was exciting, but stuffy. I prefer hotels. The Flemish people were wonderful and so nice. We even started speaking to them in French thinking that was the language spoke. Whoops. It’s not. It’s actually Flemish. A nice lady corrected us and didn’t even laugh at us. Embarressing moment of the trip number 1.

France has been so fun. The people on the trip are great and I love the city. My friend Becca and her roommate Nicole came and visited on their excursions across Europe. Very fun. We ended out night with them drinking wine at the Eiffel Tower.

Here’s a few pictures from Paris:

This girl was hilarious. She was razor scootering (which everyone does here) around the Eiffel Tower, fell off and immediately started meditating. They are all so calm here.

A few of us just booked a trip for Barcelona for a couple weekends from now. I could not be more excited. I am also planning on going to Versailles on Saturday.
