We visited the American cemetery and Utah Beach. More than 20,000 American soliders died on D-Day – when the allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy.

Suzelle summed it up best – it’s incredible to have these battlegrounds preserved – the German bunks and the craters. She pointed out that we don’t have anything like Normandy in the US because we never had a war of this mass level of destruction.

Mark and I walked to the Tour Effiel….it was ten minute walk away from the Ecole Militarie. I met with the rest of my classmates for a welcome dinner at La Terresa. My prof said last quarter’s global students were lushes. So for our quarter, they set a $200 maximum drinking cap. I managed to order bailey’s on the rocks and kir royale in French…this is what my Northwestern tutition is covering – drinks and a french dinner of poulet et frites…
