In Biarritz, there is a statue sitting atop a tunnel-like path that was designed by Gustave Eiffel (the same guy who designed the tower) that takes you to a look-out point on the ocean. Our French professor told us on Monday that your first time in Biarritz, it's a tradition to make a wish as you walk under the statue, and it will come true. So that's what we did!! I wished for something awesome, trust me.
I spoke lots of French, walked a lot, got my jeans wet in the ocean and explored another part of France. I think it was a successful day.
