Flag of France  , Île-de-France,
Tuesday, May 18, 2010

It's starting to feel as if time is blurring together… Today/yesterday/whatever was my flight to Paris and as a whole, it wasn’t that bad. I slept some of the trip, but I mainly stayed awake watching the plane’s movies and television programs. They weren’t too bad. I watched La Princesse et le Grenouille for the millionth time ever. My airplane food was delicious (or maybe I was just REALLY hungry) and my seatmate wasn’t smelly or crazy or anything.

On a related note, I am officially in French mode. I was speaking English out of desperation in Canada, but ever since stepping into Charles de Gaulle, I’ve started thinking and speaking in French to everyone. Sometimes people are surprised to see I speak it. Other times I’m a French ninja. I eavesdrop on people’s conversations simply because they assume that because I am obviously American (the FSU hoodie and flip-flops must have given it away), I do not understand French. What is even MORE amusing to me is when people treat me like a normal Francophone, not a tourist or an American. I speak proper French to them, and they speak proper French to me, rather than cutting me off and speaking in English as they often do to tourists. Somehow I feel like I’m blending in with everyone else just because I can speak French. So friends, I’ll be throwing in bits of French in my notes just to inspire you to pick up bits and pieces of it.

I expertly navigated Charles de Gaulle in Paris and found my way to the gare SNCF where I picked up my train tickets and am now en route to Rennes. From Rennes I’ll be getting on a connecting train to my final destination of Quimper.

Honestly, I’m just so ready to get off my butt. I’ve been sitting for HOURS at a time and it’s killing me. I’m not sure if I’ll have the battery life to write another entry from Rennes so my next one will most likely be from Quimper. Still missing everyone, thank you all for your support.

Love you guys.

A plus.
