Orientation Starts...

We had orientation today from 10-6. We got there at like 10:15 because the metro broke down in front of us, so it was slow going (we left the apartment at around 9:20). The orientation was long. and boring. The first part of it we could have just read through. she read about ethnocentrism and she put herself in the collective "we" of the french "people" and then she did the same thing, only she put herself in the collective of the american people, but she emigrated from Canada... so that was annoying. The second half... I don't even really remember what it was about. The guy who talked was an Irish guy who was born in Austria that moved to Paris 20 years ago... and it was pretty much Americans are stupid, and they need to be more like French people. Which was frustrating.
We have it again tomorrow, but we don't have to go to the whole thing because we are doing a Bateau Mouche ride on the Seine :/ how much more "touristy" does it get? hahahaha if only I had a fanny pack...
I'm going to get my Marie Antoinette book and relax for a little before hittin the sack. :)
Oh! and I forgot! Miss Alexa Wilcox will be coming to Paris next Thursday, January 28 and will be staying until Monday, February 1 :) :) :) soooooooooooo excited!!!!

À tout à l'heure!
