It's a wrap

Well, I guess I'll start with my last week in France. On my last weekend, my family went crazy and this is what showed up on my plate...

it's called "raclette" and basically you melt the cheeze, peel the potato, pour the melted cheese over the potato, and eat it with the meat.

After lunch I got introduced to the greatest French film of all time according to my hostfamily: Les Tuches!

"Oh Monaco, oh Monaco; chez toi il fait toujours chaud
Oh Monaco, oh Monaco; ton rocher est le plus beau
Oh Monaco, oh Monaco, on te trouve aussi au bistro!!!"

On Wednesday I met up with my favorite foreigners at the ice skating rink!

Then on Friday my class threw me a party. The goodbyes were hard!

After school I went into town with my friends for one last hurrah...

...and said my goodbyes to Angouleme.

My wonderful amazing AFS friends met in Poitiers to see us off!

After two days of travel, I finally got through immigration and customs to see my parents waiting for me at the airport.

I think we were all glad that I was home!

It's been very very nice to see my parents. Because of midterms, I've been chilling at home and catching up with all the stuff I need to do. It has been kinda weird not to be in France: I keep forgetting that everybody around me doesn't speak French and all of my habits seem off. I've even tried my hand at baking baguettes!

So, I suppose that I'm coming to the end of my blogging experience. I'll probably be back, whether in a week, a month, or a year, to rethink about my experience in France and how it is affecting my home life. But for now, a big thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this experience: my parents, my hostfamily, my friends, AFS, and my blog readers and commenters!

Au revoir et a bientôt!
