Trois rivieres, J’explore

Uncategorized Add comments

So, when I began attempting to research trois rivieres, and the j’explore program, I totally couldn’t find ANY information, except the general goverment site, and some girl’s livejournal post.

So I decided to try to make a more informative post? Kind of.

I am currently in trois rivieres, a small town in Quebec, participating in the J’Explore program…where you are supposed to speak only french. I hope that writing in english is okay.

I arrived here by bus from Toronto. Strangely, the Coach Canada bus was super cheap to Montreal. The shorter Trois Rivieres bus was more expensive. It took me about 5 hours to get to Montreal, and then I transferred to a 2 hour Orleans Express bus to Trois Rivieres, and then I took a taxi for about 10 minutes to the school.

They give us meal tickets for the sometimes dubious cafeteria food, but it’s a lot of food, and it’s really good not to pay for food every day.
In the morning there’s class from 9am-1230pm, and then there’s a class we get to choose in the afternoon from 130- 330. I chose Enviornment, because I really wanted to go to the biodome and “dans le forre.”

Tomorrow we’re taking a trip into the city.

Today I had a really strange pastry called a, vol-au-vent, which means flight in the wind. I was really dissapointed that it was empty….I was hoping it would have a filling. I intend to eat lots of stuff tomorrow to make up for it, though.

Bon nuit!

I was going to load pictures….but this internet connection won’t let me?
