Hello California you are beautiful

I'm back! I feel like I've been through an epic battle, but I'm here.

I had a good time and we saw a lot of cool things, but I think I can say that France and I don't really click. I didn't love it the first time and this time wasn't hugely different. I understand the basics of the culture but I think it's just not my thing. It didn't help that the time of year meant it was surprisingly hot and the sun never went down. After a while it seemed like the universe was conspiring to make the experience constantly unpleasant. But in the end it was nice traveling with my brother, and we have a lot of new memories, so it was definitely worth it.

Best: catacombs, Paris gay pride parade and seeing Les Miserables in the heart of the city and getting front row seats for around $30 each. Awww yeah.

I enjoyed being temporarily out of the loop, but now I just want to roll around and eat American junk food and watch tv forever. We had to transfer to a domestic flight in Texas, and the people were so friendly and smiley and I was like ommmgg ilu guys. I also hadn't slept in a day and was half crazy, but whatever. Also, milk! I still can't figure out the European milk system so I was milk-deprived and I normally live on milk so that's bleh.

So I'm glad to be home, and now that I have my own computer I can finally write again. I planned out the next chapter, but my fingers are too meaty and slow for hand writing. But first I have to hug my bunny until he hates me.

Bird hands

Oh wow, so we're in France and making fools of ourselves and it's pretty great. Everyone here speaks French and carries around baguettes. I'm starting to think that there's some elicit baguette trade going on behind the scenes, but I haven't found anyone willing to go on the inside and find out.
Also, what is wrong with French people?!

So yeah, it's been pretty exciting so far. I have to keep suppressing the super-strong urge to swim across the channel, but for now I guess I'll stick around here.

I've been putting up pictures on Facebook, so check 'em out if you want to see pictures of cheese and bones.

Taking to the skies

Leaving for France on Friday morning! Aaaahhh! After a bit of time travel my bro and I will be roaming the streets of Paris. It's a bit terrifying being the responsible adult on an international trip, but at least I got some preparation with the Ashland trip. The last time I was in Paris it was the end of our spring break adventure and we only had 2 days and I wasn't really prepared at all, so I think this one will be substantially better.

The only bleh thing is that my appointment to sign up for classes starts Friday when we're already in the air, so I'll have to work some craziness and get that sorted out.

But Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!
