Bonjour de Paris: Tiffany Clarke (5/11)

Bonjour de Paris! -
Today was our first official day of class! Our classroom is located at Reid Hall. This building is owned and operated by Columbia University in New York. Numerous colleges and universities occupy the rooms in this hall for other classes. It is not too crowded, and is pleasant to see other faces from the United States.
Our class was short. Today was mostly spent on the introductions, and our first impressions of Paris and the people who inhabit it. My first impression of the people in Paris was that they are not very friendly. Southern hospitality truly only exists in the South. The attitude in Paris is completely different, and I have to get use to this.
After class we took our first field trip. We went to the Musée du Louvre. The Louvre is one of the largest museums in Paris. This museum used to be the former royal palace, Palais du Louvre. Housed in this museum is thepainting of Mona Lisa, as well as The Famous Roman Statue. This was fun. I enjoyed all the paintings and sculptures the museum had to offer. Once again, I was left wanting to experience more of Paris and cannot wait until tomorrow.
