Sunday June 28th

Yesterday we spent the day settling in and getting to know each other better. Despite the jet lag everyone was experiencing we managed to head to downtown Nice for a stroll and a quick shop for some basics. After a great French dinner back at the residence we all decided to rest up and head to bed early, knowing the following day would be packed with fun things to do!

Sunday morning greeted us with a “pain au chocolat” and other delicious breakfast items. Soon after we headed into town to take in the sights and get familiar with what would be our “home” for the next two weeks.
After exploring the fruit market in “Vieux Nice” we grabbed a sandwich or salad for lunch and headed to the beach where we enjoyed a day relaxing in the sun, swimming, floating on inner tubes and taking in the lovely beach scenery.
After a quick (but necessary!) stop for gelato we headed back to Parc Impérial for a quick rest and change before heading back into town for an ECI welcome dinner, enjoyed by all at “Le Safari”and followed by a two-hour session with native French speakers who did a great job at prepping us for our first French class tomorrow morning.
All in all was a fun-packed and amazing day! We are all excited to see what the French classes will bring tomorrow!

A bientôt !!!!

Brooke
