We made it to France! We must say that it was a painless trip, for the most part. We hit no traffic on 95. Our flight to London was not delayed. Once in London, we had a little bit of a delay going into Basel, but all in all, it was easy.
Once in Basel, we went directly to the school where GS students met their hosts. We had lunch together and got to know each other a little better. The students spent the rest of the day and weekend with their new French friends.
