We have an exchange student! Her name is Juliette and she is 15 going on 16. She is from France and we went to Los Angeles (LA) for 2 separate days and had a blast. The first time we went we went and took a tour of Hollywood Star Homes Tour. The driver made it pleasant but not good to have a 2 year old who has just been potty trained.
We saw Katy Perry Live and that was a blast she sings very well live, however the not so great part is she was dancing so much she would get tired and then "forget" the words. Not a fan of that but she did great otherwise and it was a blast.
Juliette brought gifts for us as well. Nastya got a dress and a hat that was all hand made. Pasha and I received 2 bottles of French wine and I got a reversible purse that is awesome! We had a great time and was sad to see her leave to go home. There was a language barrier but it was not as bad as it could be!
