On the day of Sunday, March 6th, we all had a great and exciting day. Filled with long walks and painting, we all enjoyed the activities. Before I get into what we did during the day, im going to share a quick and hilarious story….
On Saturday night, my room had a surprise to say the least. I roomed with Maya Kaplan, Jordan Upchurch, and Alexa Levine during our time in France. Maya was having a great time dancing by the stove, yet accidentally made a mistake. Before long, my roommates and I smelled smoke, and sure enough the stove was clicked on and my shirt was still on it! Everyone was fine, but sadly my shirt suffered a tragic death. Rest in peace, shirt.
Sunday started off with us taking a nice walk to Pace Alum Jill Steenhuis’s property and viewed the house. We also learned some art facts while being there. Outside of the house we drew sketches of the gorgeous home and got to practice before we went to a great view of the mountain where Cezanne died. We took the opportunity of painting it with water colors/pastel following a delicious lunch of French sandwiches. Don’t get me wrong, this was amazing, yet some of my friends and I were worried our fingers were going to freeze because of the wind coming from the Alps.
Shivering and just wanting some warm drinks, we all visited a nice cafe and drank hot chocolate and crepes. Don’t ask me how many crepes I have eaten in the past days, because the answer is more than you would think…
After all of this, everyone took a much needed break and attempted at sleeping.at dinner, we got amazing fondue that everyone enjoyed. Just when we thought the day was over, our chaperones surprised us with a scavenger hunt across Aix en Provence to test how much we have been listening. As you can probably guess, most of us were tired, cranky, and freezing cold which did not help with the challenging tasks the chaperones gave us. Not to mention our prizes , gelato and candy, were closed. The boys were done and decided to walk back to the hotel, while the girls had more crepes and desserts, because you can never have too many crepes!
