Today is Wednesday of our last week of school. I can’t believe how fast this whole month has gone. This week we had our farewell dinner. Everyone made food to bring that signified the place they were from. We last minute made chocolate covered potato chips for some reason haha. There was also a massive street music festival going on yesterday that filled the streets of the city with a band on every corner or a dj or a person singing. Today we visited a mussel and oyster farm and I tried raw shellfish for the first time. It was not my favorite thing that I ate. The next two days consist of exams before our last weekend here in Toulouse. I’m very nervous my also excited to meet my host family and learn more French language as well as the culture of a French family.
Side note: The security in France is a bit scary. However, it is also comforting to see so many police/army men all over the place. I am just thankful this experience was safe and peaceful.
Second side note: my feet are constantly swollen from walking so much, my foot and my belly button piercing have gotten infected, and I have been sick for the last 3 weeks with a horrible cough. Probably due to my lack of rest and not enough vegetables.
