Thanks to Accent Paris, which facilitates our study abroad program, I went to Rouen and Giverny with my friends! Rouen, the capital of Haute-Normandie, lies on the Seine, in northwestern France. I was mostly impressed by its architectural style, which is different from that in Paris. In Giverny, I visited the house and garden of Monet, one of my favorite painters. I was exhilarated to be in the real world of Monet's drawings on a beautiful fall day.
