Nadia B. and Elise in France!

Bonjour from Saint Étienne, France. Je mappelle Nadia B, and my human companion Elise and I have been living in France for 2 months now.  It is crazy how time has flown by, but Elise and I are glad that we have a whole year to do and see everything. Elise is currently attending classes at three separate places! She takes musicology classes at the Université de Jean Monnet, French intensive classes at the International Center for Language and Civilization (a small part of the university) and she also takes composition lessons at the Conservatoire Massenet in Saint Étienne.

But Im getting ahead of myself.  At the end of August, Elise, her mom and I arrived in Paris.  We enjoyed the sights of Paris, soaking the excitement in.  Eiffel Tower, Musée dOrsay, Notre Dame, Sacre-Coeur and Père Lachaise Cemetery.  I think Elises favorite part though was the Musée Rodin, beautiful gardens and sculptures, but also not as busy as the rest of Paris.
