Tentative Schedule 

It was an experience that gave me an appreciation of a culture other than the one I live in.  I went on this Paris Study Tour to learn about the people of France and I returned convinced that I need to widen my knowledge about the world.  This study tour has put a seed in my soul to experience many other cultures.
