EXHIBITION AT LA GAITÉ LYRIQUE: guided tour.
Report by Ethel and Kawtar (209)
On Wednesday April 8th, we went to the Gaité Lyrique, a cultural center specialized in IT with our pen pals from Chicago, the exhibition was about modern design and was called "Oracles du Design". Some of us found it very interesting. At the start of this exhibition we saw pieces of furniture which could speak, it was a little bit weird but cool. Some of it had original shapes. This exhibition was very short and then we walked to the Centre Georges Pompidou to do some shopping for the American pen pals.
It was much fun and it also enabled us to get to know them better.

The best moment we had with our American pen pals was at the farewell party. We spent some time talking with some of them, and occasionally we danced but mostly we laughed because practically no one could dance, we were dancing and there was a lot of food ; crips, cakes, juices and candies.
After the parley we left the school and left for the Champs de Mars. Over there, there was the Eiffel Tower illuminated, it was beautiful.

Before the party started, our American pen pals and some French students played hands games but when we put the music everybody stood up and danced. The American students dances very well and then we learned to dance "wobble" with them. Everybody danced, our English teacher, Mrs Byrd too, it was a very good moment. They turned the music off and Dara gave a speech to thank the parents who had them over. Our English teacher made a speech too. Then our pen pals received gifts from us, their French pen pals. And when we gave the presents the music started again and we continued to dance. There was some food (prepared by us too) and everybody ate. It was a delicious moment. The party was a very good moment !

During the party we had fun. We saw our American pen pals. As they were touring in Paris we did not know them very well but we danced and played with them, it was funny. They danced very well. When Jordan danced, it was fun !
