We arrived in Paris about an hour behind schedule but that didn’t quell the excitement. After clearing customs without any issue we travelled by bus to our hostel. It was about an hour and everyone seemed to be increasingly excited. After arriving at the hostel we divided into our groups sought out lunch. Grade 10 girls and the grade 11s all independently found the same place. Mr. Brown’s group found the supermarch. After lunch we walked to Notre Dame and then to Tour Saint-Jacques. Unfortunately Tour Saint-Jacques was closed for renovations. The students were amazed by Notre Dame. We went the Centre Pompidou and the groups had spare time to explore the area and some bought souvenirs. We returned to the hostel for some down time before we head out to dinner and the Louvre.
Spirits still high despite limited sleep. All seem to be having fun.
