I made it to France but it was a long journey. First, I had my flight from Detroit to Philly. It was a 2 hour flight and it was probably the smallest aircraft i have ever been on. There was this guy infront of me that was a little crazy. He was like the spaceship has lifted and then the spaceship has landed. I was having a blast (pun intended) listening to this guy lol.
In philly, I had a three hour layover. They said that they had free wifi connection through out the terminal. That was a big fat lie. I had to walk like a mile to get it in the terminal.
The flight to Paris was 7 hours. The chairs went froma 90 degree angle to a 95 degree angle. Let's just say, Haley was not a happy person when it was 3 a.m her time. When I arrived, it took forever to get my luggage. I was really scared that it would not come. Thankfully it did. I of course had no idea who or where my host family was. I just prayed to god someone was there. I looked out and there was a piece of paper with my name on it. I sigh in relief but only for a moment. From the little french I knew, I began to understood that they were not my host family. I did not have one and i was just staying with this rotary guy till they found one for me. I was little frustrated. Here i was exhausted, needing a shower, and a place to call home. Ugh, it was not good.
Mark(this rotary guy) took me to Paris. It was really nice and I appreciated it. I wish that I had not been a walking zombie. We saw the the big arch but that is all i remember. I passed out in the car on our back to reims.
Thankfully, they found me a family that night after the rotary dinner. I live in a beautiful home and i really like it here.
Thank you to everyone that made it happen!
