In November a family invited me to come to their country house in Poissy. We went on a mushroom hunt! There were so many mushrooms, though sadly no edible ones. It was still fun though! We went on another walk on a simply gorgeous morning with the sun shining and dew sparkling on all of the plants. I also got to see some of the beautiful fall colors in France, which I didn't really see in Paris, and which I missed quite a bit from State College. In the afternoon we went to the nearby town of St. Germain-en-Laye to see the chateau there where St. Louis’ parents lived and also to walk down the long terrace from which we were able to see the city of Paris in the distance.
