Here is a map of France so you can see where Marseille is (very bottom)
From the pictures I have seen it is a beautiful city. One of the things I'm most excited about (besides the food, of course) is the fact that France is old. America is a baby compared to the rest of the world. The oldest thing in our country is Williamsburg - which I love - but we don't have nearly the history that Europe does. I cannot wait to see the old streets and churches and historic buildings.
So this the first blog post of many about France. I cannot wait for this life-changing experience. If you want to know more feel free to ask because I love talking about it!
