My school decided to sponsor the French Club in hosting 13 students from Agen, France starting two saturdays ago. My family hosted, Vincent, who is 16, same age as your's truly. I am now very glad we said yes to hosting, and I am considering going to Agen this summer. The 1st week was spring break, and we spent the days touring my area, and chilling with friends at night. He really hit it off with my friends, with his partially broken english and funny jokes. In fact, we really enjoyed being around them, and being able to ask them about France, and how they live there. Fortunatly, Vince spends nights in France at clubs, so he was more than glad to go out every night and be with people. I only hung out with about five of them, but with those five I feel like I developed a special bond. Today, they left for France, after telling us they didn't want to leave, and some even said they want to live here. I'll be honest, it was a very emotional moment, in my school parking lot, while they loaded to buses to go to Chicago, to fly off. I'll admit, I cried like a big girl at the end of the ice cream carton, it was sad. Now, I am really considering going to France, even if it is $900 round trip. Thank you for letting me type this out, and reading it, I had to tell somebody.
