I hope I get to master all this wonderful things at school. Now, talking about school, I start tomorrow!! It is not the official start since I won't have an actual class, but it is orientation day. According to what I have been told, and read, I will be getting my uniform, utensils, binder, and schedule. I have to be there by 9:30 sharp, but being that I am a bit anxious, and excited about the whole thing (ok, maybe a lot, more than I am willing to admit). I will take pictures, and promise to tell you all about it.
Back to changes in Paris the other thing I wanted to mention is the weather. I had lived in very warm climate places for the last 12 years, since I left Mexico City to go to high school (has it really been that long???) and I had been claiming all this time that I never got used to the heat since I never felt comfortable or liked being hot all day and night on a daily basis. Well, after a few weeks in Paris, I have to confess that maybe I was kind of used to it after all. I mean I am not complaining since I love the cold weather, and love to feel the cool air in my face, but I am definitively not used to being wearing sweaters in August on a daily basis either. As the last days of August have come, the mornings have been getting a bit cooler. It warms up pretty nice at around 1 pm (which I love since it is not overwhelmingly hot that one has to go hide inside with the A/C on full power), and by night it starts to cool down again. Yesterday morning as I headed out my apt I was feeling kind of cold, and thought it might was just me not being used to this weather (unless it was December or January), so I put my sweeter on thinking I was going to be the only crazy person out there in one. As I started walking towards school, I saw a lot of people even wearing scarves, and jackets, and started to realize that this weather is pretty common over here, so I just have to adjust to this new weather, and get used to the fact that while in some places there might be just one season throughout the year (always hot), there are nice places like here, where one gets to experience 2 or sometimes even 3 seasons in one day. Let’s see how that goes!!
I'll go get my things ready for tomorrow. I hope you like the pictures, they are not as nice as I wanted them, but I had to sneak into taking them. This is just one of the many shops out there. I will later share some of the other places around my neighborhood.
