Where I stayed
I actually arrived in Quimper yesterday (le 18) but I was far too excited and tired to write anything. My train ride was nice and I fell asleep just about every 10 minutes. But finally, I arrived in my final destination of Quimper. Well, not really. I actually am staying in a quiet little town called Tremeoc. Anyway, I got off the train and searched for a young couple and a baby but there was none to be found. Instead, a jolie young lady approached me with a smile. That was Angélique, the mother in my host family. We exchanged une bise and started up a conversation as we left the train station.
We talked and talked but I was pretty much out of it. Too tired to function so I drank in everything around me. When we arrived at the house, Cyril, her husband of sorts greeted me as well and they both gave me a tour of the house
Walking back home, I met some of the neighbours and their children. Everyone was very welcoming and kind. I absolutely adore my family; they are so cool (Angélique is 30, Cyril is 27) and Angélique is so excited to improve her English. Tomorrow we're going to the market to do a bit of grocery shopping and to explore Quimper. My mother may keel over reading this, but they have a motorcycle/scooter and they've agreed to teach me how to drive it. Additionally, Saturday Angélique, sa copine, and I will be going to a discothèque and I'm soo excited! I've been only once, about 5 years ago, and I have a feeling that this time I'll have much more fun
Aujour'd hui, I succeeded in burning une chocolatine and a croissant, but that's about the worst thing to have happened since I've been here. Everything is exciting and I'm trying to make the best of everyday.
More adventures later!
