... but spending time with her was by far the best part of the afternoon.
It’s a bit of a trip down memory lane for me, to hear her talk of discovering Paris. I remember my first trips to Paris, when I was a little younger that she is now. When I was 20 I came to Paris on an Ambassador College summer language program. It was organized at the last minute, so there wasn’t much structure to the program.
