I started my courses a week ago today. I think they are going to be a bit challenging, but I am looking forward to certain aspects as well. For my sustainable agriculture class, I get to spend a week with La Bergerie Nationale which is an educational farm located right in Rambouillet where my classes are. REEDS is right in the Bergerie Nationale so I get to see part of it everyday. Rambouillet is a beautiful place and I am so excited to get to have classes here. There is a chateau twenty minutes by foot from where my classes are. Also Rambouillet is filled with trees, wildlife and or groups old buildings.
Additionally, I was happy to find out last week that some of my classes will be with the mediation masters students here at REEDS. It is nice to be able to have classes with other students so I’m not on my own all of the time. The classes with those students start tomorrow so I am looking forward to that.
Finally I’ve figured out that I get to take a French course this semester. It’s only none day a week but it’s about French culture and I think it should be a good class.
I’ll leave you with a few pictures of Rambouillet near where my classes are.
