The beginning...and then some

Oh my goodness family! I haven´t been writing on here and I am so sorry! I have just been so busy and overwhelmed to really even think about this. But I guess I had better start form the beginnig...
Day number one: The trip was SO LONG! But we finally made it to Paris and jumped right into the scene. We figured out the transportation system and finally found our hotel after a very long time It was not as pretty as the pictures on the internet but not the worst thing ever...although it was the worst i have ever stayed at! We went straight to the Eiffel tower from our hotel and it was amazing! However, it was the worst weather and we got caught in the biggest rainstorm I have ever seen and had to hide under a bridge for about an hour before we could make a run for it to the bus stop...even then we were soaked by the time we made it. Day two: We woke of so late even though we went to bed by 9pm. We made our way to the Louvre which was so amazing! My camera died so all of those pitcures are on the other girls cameras. I will try and get those from them to put up for you to see. Then we tried the Eiffel tower again because I really wanted to go to the top. It was still bad weather but it held off from raining so we made it to the top! You couldn´t see very far because it was so cloudy but it was still pretty amazing. We almost missed the last train home that night which was scary but we ended up back in our hotel room and it was fine. Day three: Somehow we managed to totally figure out the French transportation system and get on our flight from Paris to Oviedo. We had the most amazing dinner on the flight and it was only an hour and a half long. We made it to Oviedo and met our families. It was really scary but they are so nice and very helpful. I really like living with them. Classes started officially today because yesterday was a Holiday in Oviedo. It is called Manchar de Campos and it is kinda like Labor day. No one works and they eat this bread called Bollo de Chorizo. It is very good. And in Oviedo they drink cider. People pour it from high above their heads into a glass and then you drink it and pour out a little at the end. It is very weird but really fun. Well...I will try and keep up with this so it is not so long next time and goes into a little more detail! Love you all!!!
