Bonjour ! (Hello!)
This morning during breakfast we met two reines (queens) who introduced the theme of the day: Monarchy. We learned that Marie Antoinette never actually said, "Let them eat cake," and that the Palace of Versailles would cost $50,000,000,000 today!
This afternoon we enjoyed the beautiful weather: the plage (beach) was open for swimming, several lively games of soccer were played, and some villageois went canoeing in the lake. We also had a spectacle de talent (talent show), featuring villagers who had quite the diversity of skills (a video and separate blog post will be coming soon!).
This evening a few rainclouds arrived, but we still had a great time at our royalty-themed banquet; villageois got all dressed up and the monos (counselors) were their servers. There seemed to be a consensus that dessert was the best part: a parfait with strawberries and creme!
With full stomachs and smiles,
