After arriving in Lacoste yesterday afternoon, seeing the most jaw dropping views as drove into the town and walking up the hill into the village, and exploring all of the streets and buildings, it’s safe to say I’m basically in heaven.

Everything here is gorgeous and historic and old but so beautiful and well restored and full of life. The light is so lovely everywhere you look, and the color of everything is so wonderful.

Somehow this morning my body decided to wake up at 6:00am - so I decided to take a little hike up to the top of the hill, sit on the chateau wall and watch the sunrise… I watched as the sky turned vibrant pinks, purples and blues, until the sun finally rose and passed behind a cloud to form the overcast light that followed…

I took some more shots while headed back down to my house, had some breakfast and then headed down to the bus to Apt (to go the the market)

There were so many different vendors selling different kinds of food/produce, clothes, soaps, flowers/plants, and just about everything else in between… Apt is such a cute little town :)

After leaving Apt, we headed to Pont Julien (a 2000 year old bridge) for a picnic and some exploring before heading back to Lacoste for orientation tours, a quick workout, and dinner.

The first full day here has been so wonderful, I can’t wait to see what new adventures the next few hold and what my classes will be like… As I sit here, trying to hold my eyelids open, I just hope that I will be able to make it back up the steep stone stairs to my bed before I pass out…

Au revoir et bon nuit!
