Today a few of us decided to go to Catacombs. The line was long but it moved quickly. For our tour we used the audio guide, we learned the history of catacombs. In this open section there over 1,000,000 skeletons. There are still many undiscovered areas in Paris
Welcome to Paris!! Today we walked around the neighborhood. We got to see the markets, post office, and the metro station. It was great seeing Professor Zinder again. She shared some information on how the metro system works and as well as the navigo. Tomorrow is the start of this journey with a tour of Paris. See you all tomorrow.
Bonjour!! Today was our first immersion class with Professor DuChamp. The day started with receiving important information from Professor Pericles and as well a few gifts. The guides received in the giftbags will be extremely helpful during our stay in Paris. Professor DuChamp has taught us about the French culture, numbers and many useful phrases. The group was very excited to learn the valuable information from today’s class. See you all tomorrow for our second immersion class.
Immersion Class Day 1
Learning with Professor DuChamp
Today we traveled outside of Paris to Chantilly, to visit Auberge Du Jeu De Paume a five-star hotel. Before going on the tour, the hotel manager, Nicole, the human resource manager Josephine and her assistant Catherine, gave us the full background of the hotel. Auberge Du Jeu De Paume has been opened for six years, contains 120 employees and 20 interns from all over the world. The hotel contains 92 rooms including 25 suites, spa, gym, fine dining restaurant and bistro style restaurant.
Each of the rooms interior design is inspired by the Chateau along with replicas of painting held in the Chateau. The first restaurant inside the hotel is a one Michelin star fine dining restaurant called La Table du Connetable. the chef of the restaurant is currently working on getting two Michelin stars. The second restaurant La Jardin d’Hiver is a bistro restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The spa in the Auberge Du Jeu De Paume was influenced by Switzerland and offers a special treatment in which you can be wrapped in chantilly cream. The hotel is right next door to the Chateau and the horse museum. I would definitely recommend going to the horse museum, with your ticket you get access to the Chateau, the gardens on the property and the horse show, for 10 euros with your student id.
