Today, we didn't have to do anything with the class because there was no school
Anywho, this morning I had to pack because I am staying with Wanda for the weekend
Later on in the afternoon, we went to the park where we met up with a few more students
We hung out for about 3 hours and finally went home
Me and Miranda are hanging out now, secretly eating food
Tomorrow is pretty much our last day
Today we went to the Roman Bath House, Baden Baden and to a pottery village!!
The pottery village was pretty boring
At the bath house there were many different pools of all different temperatures
There was this one room that was filled with vapor, it smelled like vicks vapor rub
There were pools inside and outside
It was so nice and relaxing
After our long day of fun, the school had a dance for us Americans
It was pretty up beat and fun
Everyone was getting down and JIGGY with it
I had a wonderful day

Today we went to Europa-Park
I haven't been on a roller coaster since I was 5 or 6 so I was a little bit scared to ride them today
The first one I went on was very scary and it made me even more scared to ride bigger ones
I ended up riding about 6 roller coasters, but I didn't really like them
One of the roller coasters was in a big ball and it was very dark so I didnt know what was going on, but it was my favorite
On another, we rode sideways and it gave me a really bad headache and I was super scared
I still feel like I'm on a roller coaster
Roller coasters are not my favorite things in the whole wide world, but I'm glad I got over my fear and rode some

Today we went bowling and to the European Parliament
Bowling was fun and their bowling alley was a lot nicer than ours
Some of us had lunch at McDonalds and it was delicious
While Flore was in school I went shopping with some other people, but I didnt buy anything
The European Parliament was kind of boring because our tour guide took us into the room and talked to us for about an hour about stuff that wasn't important
We had some americans over for dinner and it was fun and the food was really good, it might have been better than McDonalds
Today was a fun day, but I can't believe this is the last week in France
Today we went to PARIS
I got up at 4:45 because we had to be at the train station at 5:45
The train was so much fun, it was really fast
When we got to Paris we rode around in the bus and then went to Notre Dame, it was very cool
Then we went to the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower was huge and very pretty
I got some really good pictures of the Eiffel Tower
We took an elevator to the 2nd floor which was really just a floor right under the top
We ate lunch below the Eiffel Tower and I got ice cream
I have wanted to get ice cream this whole trip and I finally did and it was delicious
I bargained with some men selling Eiffel Tower key chains and I ended up getting the best deal
We went to the Louvre after we left the Eiffel Tower
It was very big and beautiful
We saw so many pieces of famous artwork, but the one I liked the best was the Monna Lisa
Paris was wonderful and I wish we could have stayed longer

Today we went to church
It was very confusing because everything was in French
After church, there was a picnic with Me, Caitlyn, Courtney, Miranda and some other people
It was fun
We just got home and made homemade ice cream
I am about to go try some
Tomorrow we go to PARIS
Today, I woke up at 11:00
We went to Marie's for lunch and had hot dogs
After lunch, we went to the park with Gina, Caitlyn, Courtney, and Tara and their French hosts
When we got home, we just hung out and then Flore went to a party, but I didn't feel good so i stayed home with Chloe and her two friends
