June can be an interesting time to be in France. This past Sunday, many of the students participated in the Fête du Vélo ("the festival of the bike") here in Saumur and in nearby cities. Below you can see a photo that I took of what I saw:
On Monday, there was the Fête de la Musique (music festival). On this day, (almost) every city is filled with groups playing all types of music on the street (such as rock, fanfare, tap dancing, reggae, jazz, etc.).
If only I could find his myspace...
On Wednesday, the teachers got to meet with the host families. We presented the program and the goals of the program and we now feel that they have a better understanding of what is expected of the students and of them.
