Poitiers: la ville aux cent clochers

First meeting with the host families!

After a lovely Wednesday morning on the Seine and les Champs-Elysées, we hopped on a train (le TGV, or train à grande vitesse - literally, a train at high speeds) and made our way to beautiful Poitiers! It was a little nerve-wracking to meet our host families for the first time, but with the amount of français we’ve been speaking for the last several weeks, we were more than ready for the challenge.

Berthe Morisot, Femme à sa toilette

Another busy day for our migratrices! We’re finally adjusting to the time change, which made it much easier to crawl out of bed this morning; a good night’s sleep and an excellent petit déjeuner didn’t hurt, either.

Bonjour, Paris!

Going for a stroll in the Tuileries

Our migratrices have had a busy few days! Saturday started with an early wake up call and a quick breakfast before we said au revoir to Lac du Bois, Hackensack and headed out on the next step of our adventure. Accompanied by our faithful mascot, Hubert le huard (Hubert the loon), we made our way to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport and got ready to say Bonjour to la ville lumière (the city of lights).
