Getting Settled into Nantes

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

I’m Loc Nguyen, a senior at the Foster School, and I decided to study abroad this summer on a Foster School exchange. I’m participating in a six week program at Audencia Ecole de Management and will do some traveling following the program.

Then, later in the evening, the French students invited the American students to hang out with them and get to know them a little bit more. It was a fun night as it gives me an opportunity to know other American kids and at the same time the French students. The French students took us to a bar “le lieu unique”. It was not new to me, but it was still a good time to hang out.

The group that I hang out with seems to be the most diverse out of all the groups. We have an Asian guy, a gay guy, white guy, European guy, European girl, black girl, black guy, and a farm boy. Haha. It’s nice hanging around with these people because we are so different from each other.
