A little background first:

Most of you guys know I enrolled in culinary school this past spring, and while it's tough, I'm having fun with it. Well, the school has this program where they send eight students to their sister school in France while they send eight of their own to Houston.

I went ahead and applied since this would be one hell of an opportunity. I was supposed to hear from them on the 21st, but that came and went with no word. I thought I wasn't selected, but then I got the call about twenty minutes ago.

I am one very happy Banana right now.

We'll be doing a week-long tour in Paris, and then we're going to the West coast for the duration of the trip. Just north of the Bordeaux region.

You got the cheese-eating down, now you're that one step closer to being a surrender-monkey as well ;)

I got a French degree in college but was never able to study there. Enjoy it and take/post pictures, so I can live vicariously through you. :)

That's awesome and should be a great time. You'll be able to learn how to make Foie gras which is sadly almost unheard of in the US.

Anyone can shove a funnel down a ducks throat. I think I will try it at the park tomorrow;)

Congrats Domino! I highly recommend you learn some important french words before you go there though as most of the frenchies don't speak english at all and the current political/social climate is rather tense. Depending on where you're going, you should start with stuff like "au secours!", "appelez la police!", or "enlève ta main de mon cul, connard!".
