Arrival of the partners! (Romania, Turkey, Poland, Latvia)
We sang a song invented by Mrs KREILOS, one of both music professors of our school. The partners also sang. Later, Maxime took his accordion and played " Dans le port d’ Amsterdam " and we made "hou-". Before they arrived, with Mrs Bienvenu, we had prepared room 5. Marie Margaux made beautiful decorations, in particular a picture (board) representing a bird. In the afternoon, I was not there. We ate all together at the canteen.

Then we visited the other buildings or the monuments. In the end, we (only French) went to one or two stores to buy candies and cakes. We gave it to the partners! In the evening we returned by bus.

We entered inside, it was beautiful and big. We went tosome famous places of Paris, to the Louvre... But the sky was not very beautiful and was very polluted. In the evening, we saw the Eiffel Tower!
