I know that I have been terribly lax at updating this darn thing! I guess I am just not a very good blogger... I get busy with doing things on my trip and just don't seem to get around to it as much as I thought that I would. Anyway, I have enjoyed my past week here in Paris immensely and am kinda bummed that this is going to be my last day, so I am going to keep this entry short so that I can go take advantage of the last bit of time I have here in the city!

My parents and sister were here for the first few days and I got to spend a bit of time with them, not much as they were with a tour group, but a bit. That was really nice. Plus I was able to send some of my souveniers back with them as my backpack has gotten quite full and I still have 3 weeks left to go! I have been able to see most of the major touristy things and even was able to find some nice things that weren't so touristy - my favorite of which is a little park (Parc Monceau) that I might try to go back to today if I have some extra time. I want to visit the Opera Garnier and St. Chapelle before I leave, as well as have a nice meal and coffee at one of the street cafes. Maybe the Musee d'Orsay if I have enough time and then I am joining CÚline and her friends for dinner at the house. [CÚline is a girl that I met in Madrid and she has been kind enough to let me stay with her for a few days.]

Other than that, just really have enjoyed my time just being here in Paris and soaking up the atmosphere more than anything. I have come to realize that I am just about fluent in French!!! And I think it's kinda funny when people think I am from Spain or Italy, until I tell them that I am from the States. I am genuinely pleased with even the progress I have made with my language skills in the past few days and think I am going to do what I can to continue my ability to speak the language that I have come to love so much. Also, had a chance to go to church on Sunday at Hillsong Paris - AMAZING! Really glad that I had the opportunity to really get together with a church where I felt right at home and that I got a very good message while I was there.

Lots of love, Heidi
