Actual Finals Week

EDIT: I realize I am posting this while I am already back in America, but I really did write it while I was in the midst of Finals Week (but then added some thoughts post the-worst-week-ever). IT IS FINALS WEEK. Although many of my friends in America will laugh because I only have two finals […]

The Californians Go to Pérouges

The UC EAP program pulled through once again and planned a short afternoon trip to Pérouges, a small medieval city which is about 15 minutes away from Lyon. The “city” is a circle which you can walk around in about 10 minutes. They have a church / fortress where the people of the town used […]

Welcome to France, Mon Ami! [Lyon Edition]

I mean, I was excited but I knew that I would just come back home after a few months, and who really cares about the French language, ammirite? It probably happened somewhere around the middle of October when the other students were […]
