Paris: Day 1

21 Jan

So it turns out I was right. I don’t know French. And although I appreciate the supportive comments from my friends and family saying I will “be fine” because I have been “studying French for years,” you were all wrong. Every single one of you. I am basically a toddler over here. I understand what the adults are telling me, but I cannot respond because it turns out I know about four words and they are all colors. I am a French toddler, but much larger and probably less chic.

On another note, I made my first French friend. She’s ten. We did the gangnam style dance and listened to Ke$ha, so we are basically besties. I have figured out a way to get around the language barrier. Unfortunately, that is only for bonding and not communicating. So I’m still lost.

But I can see the Eiffel Tower from my window and I didn’t get ripped off by my cab driver this morning, so I can’t complain too much.

    Lol. I love you, Melanie! By the end of the semester, you’ll probably be writing this blog in French!
