After that, we met with the tour guide and went to see the beaches of Normandy. It was an emotional thing to witness and experience, but I am glad to have the pleasure of visiting.
One of our last stops was the American Cemetery. It made me feel sad not knowing the names of those who helped us have the life we have now, but I am happy to have been able to visit them and say thank you.
At the end of the evening, we had a nice dinner. It was a sort of Shepard's Pie with duck meat. It was actually very delicious and I was pleasantly surprised.
With the night coming to a close, some of the students traveled with the tour guide to see a castle nearby while the rest had a little while to shop.
Overall it was a lovely day and I am extrememly privileged to spend it with the people I am with.
