French Cup Day 1
Bon jour! Salut de France! It's been an eventful first day for the Skyliners. After landing in France at about ten this morning we loaded the bus for a full day of touring Paris. We visited the Arc de triomphe, the Eiffel tower, the champs-élysées, then grabbed some lunch at the hard rock cafe. Continuing on we passed the louvre, then visited notre dame. We were blown away by the beauty of the city. It's definitely not what we're used to, living so close to New York City. After our tour we began the two and a half hour trip to Rouen. Welcoming us were innovative advertisements for the French Cup that were posted around the city. Our whole team was excited to see that the entire town would be involved with this weekends events. We're looking forward to a fun filled week of skating and enjoying the fantastic sights of France!
