Lyon  
Ok, so I've been in France for a week, and it's awesome! I love that you can see Roman ruins, Romanesque architecture, Gothic Cathedrals,  Renaissance buildings, and more modern structures all in about ten minutes! If only Canada had this much history.
The courses are really good. I love learning about all the different facets of the city: history, culture, urbainzation, politics, litterature, etc. I think one of the best parts of last week was seeing the Lyonais parking lots. The city comissioned different artists and architects for each one and they are gorgeous!
We also went to Geneva on Saturday, which was amazing. Such a beautiful city, with great shopping, monuments, museums, and restaurants. I wouldn't spend more than a day there, though.
As much as I love Lyon, I could never live here. Everyone smokes, and does so right beside you. I also miss all of my Norht American creature comforts. I'm sure that I could get used to it if I wanted to, but I don't. This trip is just showing me how much I love to visit these places, but also how much I love living in Canada.

I'm so stressed for my last exam right now. But as of tomorrow afternoon, I am offically free!!! I was babysitting last night and the kids were pretty good, but come bedtime neither of them wanted to sleep. This wouldn't normally be an issue, but I was going to miss Ugly Betty! So I think I did what any sane human being would do: I plopped them down on the couch and tried to get them to sleep as I watched Ugly Betty. (*looks away in shame*) At least they were too young to understand what was going on, or at least that's what I tell myself...
And I was so excited to see Otto (from the West Wing) on Grey's Anatomy last night!! After Carol last week, they're really dipping into the West Wing talent pool (and I'm not complaining!)
