I'm in the humid little sea port known as La Rochelle. Staying with a very nice host family consisting of a mother named Marie and her hot as hell son, Benji. The class they put me in is really intensive. We go every day at 9 AM and go until 4 PM with a two hour lunch break. The classes are entirely in French. La Rochelle is an interesting mix of industrial deco, kitchy seaport, classic french, and medieval buildings. It's very different from Paris. Paris seemed like a huge city with an overbearing history that lorded over it. I really loved that. La Rochelle seems like a town that happens to have a long history but is more focused on the sea and much more laid back.
