After several days with our host families, what a delight to see each other again today! And as if that weren't exciting enough, we got a chance to visit le Futuroscope, a theme park celebrating science, technology, and the world of the future.
All week long, no matter where we went in or around Poitiers, people would say to us, "Ah, mais vous allez voir le Futuroscope, n'est-ce pas?" ("Oh, but you're going to go see the Futuroscope, right?") The hype was pretty intense, but the park itself was worth the wait: we danced with robots, traveled through time and space, took a trip through the region of Vienne, went down an enormous slide, ate ice cream...it was a great day, and a fitting end to our action-packed time in Poitiers.
We've got one last night at "home" tonight, and tomorrow we're hitting the road again: Montbazon, Amboise, Blois, and eventually back to Paris before we head home for good. Wish us bon voyage as we continue our migration! And remember that you can follow us on Instagram for up-to-the-minute (or at least the hour) details of our adventures! (link below)
