Bonjour.

A picture of meMy name is Rachel Arroyo, and I'm a senior at the University of Florida majoring in journalism. This summer, I will travel to Paris to study documentary filmmaking.

It is my hope that you will follow me on my traipse through the City of Lights by reading journal entries I will post on a daily basis, starting with my departure on May 1

While I wish you all could sip a café au lait under the Eiffel Tower with me, the best I can do is provide you with such graphic accounts of my adventures that you will feel you are strolling the Champs Elysees or picnicking at Versailles.

As far as I know, my trip will last only two weeks, unless I decide to train at a fencing academy on a whim or enroll at Le Cordon Bleu.

Visit the "Travel Diary" page beginning May 1 to follow me on my journey.
