À l'école!

Published: July 19, 2018

Today, we went back to school for a day of class at the lycée de St-Jacques de Compostelle, a local technical high school.  It was a great opportunity to compare our first night with our host families, and to talk about the culture shock that we're all experiencing.  It's always a little strange to be placed with a host family, but we've resolved to stay curious, optimistic, and patient with our host families and ourselves.  Just like learning a new language, adapting to a new culture takes time and work, but we know we're already making great progress.

Not many new photos today - we were too busy studying!  We have a few pictures of our first moments with the host families, though - check them out below!
