Dr. Nell gave a great summary of yesterday and the pictures say it all. One of the promises we make to this class going in is that Paris itself is the classroom and you can see that it is the case from the pictures. The talks are so much more real when they are delivered in situ, so to speak.
The other promise we make is that by the end of the stay, the students will be the masters of Paris and today is the day they get to demonstrate that. Since a nationwide sale started earlier in the week, I know that some folks have been plotting their shopping excursions for days now. I am heading for a trendy new district called South Pigalle (SoPi) to see what I can find.
It is hard to believe that we are getting towards the end of our stay. Tomorrow we will picnic at the Eiffel Tower and then have a closing banquet followed by a boat ride along the Seine.
