A New Realm

It's been only a few days and I've begun an affinity with Aix en Provence.
The world is different here, even from the other parts of Europe that I have been to before.
I am beginning to understand the french way of life,
and the art that is everything here;
 eating and drinking and dancing and walking and breathing and dressing.
The people here are constantly surprising me in the best of ways,
so that my expectations are slowly drifting away down these long ancient corridors.
I simply can't believe a place this beautiful is part of my everyday life.
I have discovered the Boulangerie Jacob on my way to school where I buy a fresh baguette everyday, 
and I have fallen in love with vin ros√©, which I drink every evening.
I am surrounded by new people and an exquisite, tender language.
I wake up to the city coming alive every morning, I can hear it from the balcony across from my bed;
cars and families and men without women, and women with men, and dogs and buses and wind,
and the lives
of people simply existing.
