And so the program comes to an end…

Dear Parents, Guardians, Family, and Friends,

It was a great pleasure to work with your sons and daughters — saying goodbye to them for the final time was difficult! I apologize for not being present to greet you at arrivals—alas, I had a flight to catch to Indianapolis! I’ve spent a day resting and I look back on our voyage with nostalgia; they are so talented and industrious… from the first day to the last they amazed me.

For this final post I’d like to share with you the best photos from our trip to Paris. I apologize that the photos lean towards certain students in my Paris student group — we spent Paris in groups of 8+ students with professors (to better let them visit certain preferred sites together) and thus I only had limited moments to capture those outside my group.

The last week has been so busy that I include the pictures here without the general summary that you may be use to (they all come from our final week); they are all from our Paris adventure and I will include as much detail as comes to mind.
