I woke up stunned that it was already our last day in the city of lights. It seems like just yesterday that Darcy and Jim led us down the streets of Paris for the first time to our hostel. Now that we’ve finally mastered the metro system, we’re already packing up and heading to London.
This morning I made some final photo choices and last minute edits before the critique in the early afternoon, like many others in my room. The critique went well because it seemed that we all made our opinions clear about each other’s photos. We gave advice on what could work better next time there is a similar photo opportunity, and pointed out what we liked about the photos. Howard even told us that he enjoyed the commentary that was being exchanged between us and that we were a lively group.
After the critique wrapped up in the late afternoon, Kristen, Marisol, Mandy, and I visited the Musee Du Louvre. We made it our goal to first see the Mona Lisa and then work our way around the museum. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to see all of the artwork in the few hours we were limited to due to our plans we made for the night.
A majority of the group met under the Eiffel Tower to eat our last dinner in France together. We sat in a circle on the lawn near the Tower and talked about how it’s so hard to believe we’re leaving France, and our excitement for arriving in London, among other random topics. We left after seeing the lights on the Tower twinkle at midnight. It’s hard to leave such a beautiful city, but the program is not over yet, and there much more to see and fun to be had! Au revoir, Paris!
