Paris!

Hello there!
How are you all doing?

Another quick update for you
I'm starting to adjust to Spain and it's becoming more and more comfortable every day, which I am SO relieved about
I can't believe how down I felt on Sunday, but I really did feel the culture shock

Spanish mothers are very proud of their cooking and feed you HUGE portions
They also get offended if you don't eat it all
Therefore, I am eating SOOO much
Their eating schedule is a lot different than in the U.S. as well
They basically have 5 meals a day, but because I'm in school for one and one is kind of optional, I can at least make it 3
I'm afraid we will be able to see the progress of my weight gain as I post photos across these next few months haha UH OH

Anyway! Paris was a totally different vibe from London.
Equally as busy, but it seemed quieter, and not as welcoming
Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it
It is so crazy when you realize you're seeing things in real life that you've only seen in photos and movies
Since neither my mom, Margaret or I speak any French, there definitely was a barrier
We didn't venture out on our own nearly as much as we did in London
Instead we tried some restaurants and took a few guided tours, one of them being at night
It really helped us see a lot in a way that was easy for us

I hope you enjoyed and my first photos from Spain will be coming soon!
