McDonalds, Roofs, and the Train

So today I got to go visit my sister in a town called Chelles (pronounced Shell) where she teaches English to kids. I rode the train there which was really fun! While there, I saw something that you guys have probably seen before...a McDonalds! Can you believe they have them in France. While walking around, I noticed that there is not much space for flowers, grass and trees. So, some people have gardens on their roofs! Weird, huh!?

My first day in Paris

My first day here has been so fun but I am so tired. I didn't get to sleep much on the plane and then when I got here I wanted to play with my sister! When I got to her apartment, I got to ride up to the 6th floor in a super small elevator! It was pretty funny. And then we went out and got a baguette. Everyday my sister (and many people in France) walk to the Boulangerie to get a baguette (bread) to eat with their meal. It was super fun to do even though it was raining. Now we are settling in for the night and we will play guitar hero!

The airplane

Hey Guys! So I boarded a plane for Paris today. It was a HUGE plane, but it needed to be to get me across a HUGE ocean. Do you know what ocean I am flying across? If you do, make a post and tell me! It will take 10 hours. Can you believe that? I will get to watch the movie Enchanted though!
