So I successfully completed my first week of work and what a week it was. After starting off the week not really know any French at all and having no idea what was going on, I've gotten busy working on one of my projects, met friends, learned some new words and phrases and had a little fun.
For anyone that is interested, there is a very cool project/program that Legrand has innovated call In One by Legrand. You can take an interactive tour online of a house that has been built using Legrand's wiring accessories and technology to create a home that is green, efficient, and can be monitored and control from light switches, your television, the internet, your TV remote, your car keys and more. Just go to www.legrandelectric.com. You'll have to change it to English at the top of the page and then click on the heading "Press" for news about the company. Once you have arrived there, you can scroll down on the right side of the page to take the In One tour. It's pretty neat. I got to take a tour of it on Thursday and Jenn actually got to go to Legrand to see it aswell for part of her internship with the Chamber of Commerce too.
I can't say that my job is terribly exciting as all I'm doing right now is research, but everyone is nice and I'm getting the hang of things. Some of the interns had a soiree or party Saturday night and invited me and Jared and Jenn to come too. It was pretty interesting to hang out with them, but all in all it was a good time.
Jenn and I also took some time Saturday to explore some of the City Center by doing some shopping and sight seeing. We got to see two of the three churches/cathedrals that are only about 5 min. walk apart from each other.
Today I went to church at the Cathedral. It's the only church that we didn't see on Saturday. I have some more pictures to post later of it. It was very nice, but as it was all in French it needless to say, hard to understand.
We are planning a trip for this next weekend to go to Reims which is in Champagne, so it should be very exciting and a good change of pace from work in Limoges.
Miss you all. Take care.
