Wednesday we bid Bon voyage to our French student Claire Marie. Her english vocabulary was limited, so we did a lot of pointing and hand gesturing, but we got by. I only wish the timing were better so that we could have spent time with her over the weekend.
Her weekdays were filled with organized group activities such as the visiting the springs, the space center and the parks. The highlight of the week for me was taking Claire and two of her cohorts on a UCF campus tour Tuesday morning. President Hitt was out of the office, but Provost Hickey was gracious enough to take a moment and greet the students.
There was a raucous potluck dinner the last night with American host families and the 40 french kids.
Au revoir, Claire! (a few more photos here.)
