Today was a very long day! I woke up early and I will probably go to bed late since, we are going to Paris tomorrow. The day started when my alarm woke me up at 5:30 a.m, right then and there I knew it was going to be a very long day, as I struggled to get out of bed.
After that, I took my morning shower and got ready for the day ahead of me. At the breakfast table, I struggled to speak in understandable French, as I was extremely tired due to lack of sleep. Chloé, my correspondent, and I ate breakfast and then walked to the bus stop where, this big, manual-transmission coach bus picked us up. The bus ride was about an hour, so not too bad.
When we arrived at the high school, I met up with the other American students. Right after that we embarked on the second day of service at Kienzl. The kids were better than yesterday; very excited. Even though I am not supposed to pick favorites I did anyways. There was a different teacher in class today, which was weird for pre-school children. After the morning session ended we walked back to the high school for lunch. The lunches here are very different than George School. After lunch, we went back to the pre-school for the second half of the day, it was fun since, Cynthia, another member on the trip, was with me in the same classroom. After the service was finished I was able to attend French class with my correspondent. After class, my correspondent and I took the bus home where we ate a nice dinner and relaxed. This was my second day of service in a nut shell.
