Weekend Trip to Fes 

October 30, 2019

On Friday, we met up at the language center at 9:30 and took a van to Fes. The two Moroccan students, Kanza and Maroua, joined us on our trip. The ride to Fes from Rabat took about 3 hours, but we took a pit stop halfway to grab a bite to eat. When we finally... Read More

Last Weekend in Paris and End of Finals

October 17, 2019

Salut! Its the start of October, and I’m realizing I’ve been living in France for over a month now, which seems absolutely crazy on one hand, but on the other, it feels like home! Since my last post, I (along with the rest of the APA students) went to a beautiful concert at... Read More
