So, I'm officially in Calais, finally. It was a long ride getting here, in more ways than one. First off, we took about an hour long TGV ride up to Lille, where our Zone Leaders are at. The TGV goes over 200 miles an hour, so it that's why it was so quick. But, due to low funds, I ended up staying the night there. Kind of crazy, doing an exchange my first day of the new transfer, but it happened. I was with Elder Oliverson, one of the ZLs.

So, before I get too far into the week, P-day happened. It was just kind of a relaxed P-day, where we ended up on top of the Arc de Triomphe to end my time in Paris. It was just beautiful, getting up there right as the sun was setting. I got some sweet pictures and one final look at Paris before leaving.

I got to see Olivier one last time on Tuesday. We teach him in English, and the weirdest thing happened. In the middle of the lesson, I accidentally started speaking French! I went on that way for like, 30 seconds before catching myself. It was crazy.

Oh, quick side note: Apparently an Elder Bigler served here forever ago, in 1969-70 ish, named Jeff. Anybody we know? (After a little family history research, we found out this is Adam's Dad's Cousin Jeff who served in Calais around that time as part of the Franco-Belgium Mission. Thanks Cousin Dean Bigler for the information. Small Mormon World. We're not sure how Adam came across that information so quickly in his new city.)
Anyway, that's about it for this week. It's gonna take some getting used to, but I like it so far. I'll be sending some pictures on dropbox too, and more next week. I love you guys! Sorry the letter was kind of disorganized this week, I hope it's okay! Be good!
