I learned how to navigate 3 different transportation systems in one day: the interprovincial trains, city tramways, and buses. I'd like to give myself a pat on the back for learning the ins-and-outs of Paris to Grenoble transportation while carrying all my luggage with me and functioning on literally zero hours of sleep (Disclosure: I watched too many movies on the plane, so the zero sleep was admittedly my own fault).
Nonetheless, it was absolutely a wonderful first day in France. The train ride into the valley of Grenoble made me squeal in delight because it looked like a storybook.
Yikes... I slept 22 hours straight
And I’m not even surprised. After I got to the residence Houille Blanche, where I'll be staying for the next month, I jumped in the pool, wrote a quick message to my mom and dad to tell them I was alive, and then fell asleep at around 6 PM… not waking up until 4 PM tomorrow (writing this retroactively). That’s what I get for staying up 34 hours, I suppose. Watching "The Matrix" in French was totally worth it. I’d make a great sleep study.
Also: There is a coffee dispenser downstairs that makes you a cafe latte, cappuccino, regular coffee, or espresso for 0.40 euros. I already know I’m going to be spending quite a bit on that machine.
