Just checking in to assure you that all is going well. I got a research assistantship working on a global poverty research project! I’m super excited. Also, I made fajitas today. And I went to the Champs-Elysees last night. That is the big news of the week. I’ve been working on a blog for everyone (not just a blog for me close friends), and that will be coming soon. Also, I will be posting pictures soon too, so stay tuned. I haven’t forgotten you, and you will hear more about the fabulous world of Paris shortly (I do have a full-length blog planned, I just need to write it tomorrow). I leave you with two thoughts this evening: 1) there is an art to running with dogs that I have yet to learn. 2) Sometimes pretending that I speak terrible French is necessary on trains.
