It was also interesting to try and communicate...I can speak fine with my host family here in Switzerland, but in Paris it turns out the French is quite different! They speak much faster! One Parisian even told my friend she had a Swiss French accent. I had no idea the dialects were so different. I wonder if we will all have Swiss accents when we speak French by the time we leave?
I think my favorite memory from Paris was when one day my friend's mom sent her a list of the best places in Paris for bread, pastries, cheese, etc. And so we set off on a bit of a treasure hunt all over the city to try and find them. We found most of them, and they did not disappoint! The others I will have to find when I go back...
The first couple of days in Paris were really rainy. I don't think anyone minded though...our group was so excited we headed out to walk around the city all the same.
