I finally got to Paris. This morning, the groggy and confused husk of a person I was, landed at the Charles De Gaulle airport. I suffered through the mess that masqueraded as a Passport checking line and found my way to the CIEE greeting party.
The rest of the day consisted of an impromptu tour of the neighborhood I'm staying in, a guided walking tour of the first and fourth arrondissements, and getting acquainted with the program. As I walked around, it was hard for me to accept that after so long, I eventually got here. Paris is completely overwhelming, yet in the most pleasant way possible. Since I need to take a reflective course in the fall on this experience, I will be blogging to keep track of my reactions.
Here are some pictures.
