Hello, Kyrgyzstan

Hello, Kyrgyzstan

Well, my vacation is officially halfway over. Yesterday morning Dad and I bid adieu to France, after a week and a half of good times, and drove to the airport. There, we left on a plane going to Istanbul, Turkey, and then boarded another aircraft headed for Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The flights were a different experience for us after riding on Delta and Air France airlines all the time. Both planes were part of Turkish airlines, and … Read entire article »

A Tour of Paris

A Tour of Paris

There are many beautiful things I’ve seen in my life, like the outer Hebrides in Scotland, or the Cherohala skyway in North Carolina. However, today I saw something that surpassed even those two experiences. But let’s catch up to this morning first before you find out what was so awe-inspiring that I saw. As you recall, Dad and I took yesterday and visited Paris, mainly Notre Dame. Today we returned to the city of lights, … Read entire article »

A Day In The City Of Lights

A Day In The City Of Lights

Today was a special day. There’s no other way to put it. It was special to Dad and me both because, for the first time ever, we visited the city of Paris! We left our apartment sometime after twelve to catch the bus, and somehow found our way into the big city. After getting our bearings straight, we decided that the first thing we would do would be to take a trip to the famous … Read entire article »

Observations

Hello again! Today was another observing day for me, and it started at breakfast. My normal breakfast is usually something different every morning, like pancakes, waffles, toast, or oatmeal. But I’ve been eating cereal every morning that I’ve been here. And it hasn’t been frosted flakes or anything like that. No, it’s been Muesli triple chocolate and Kellogg’s Extra, with bananas, cranberries, raisins, and pomegranates in it. Totally tres bien. I spent the morning in my room again doing schoolwork, and for lunch went with the guys to the same Turkish restaurant Dad and I went to on day two:  Le Marma-Ris, in Ris Orangis. After we finished the delicious meal, I joined them going back to the Agape building, watching them as they worked. For the past few days. Dad … Read entire article »

Different, But Similarly Burdened

Different, But Similarly Burdened

Well, day three in France came and went. Today was a bit more laid back than the first two, so I was able to focus more on some of the small details that are contrary from back home, starting with our hotel itself. It has an electric gate with a keypad. There is a keypad at the door as well. The lights outside and in the lobby are all motion-activated, so there’s having to constantly … Read entire article »

New Sights, New Foods

New Sights, New Foods

After a day in France, my list of new experiences is steadily growing larger. Today, I started it off by going to the church where Simon’s father, Jean-Luc Terrien, pastors. He pastors an interracial, multicultural congregation with a large immigrant population.  It was a normal church service, just like back home; well, except for the language difference. We sang worship songs (in French), prayed (in French), and listened to a very good message (which was … Read entire article »
