So after being here a full 3 weeks, I'm feeling more comfortable and am getting the vibe of how to live here. I've been to a string orchestra concert on my own, but have also done some travelling to the Island of Frioul off Marseille and Cassis to see the cliffs with some friends. Classes are mostly lecture, which can be tiring sometimes, especially since they are hours long here. I'm having trouble speaking more of the language because there are so many people here who speak English, even the locals! Assimilating myself visually doesn't seem to be a problem with all the shops though!
