After three months of cold weather in Paris, I am Finally able to bask in the ambiance of Spring in Rouen! Aside from Rouen’s Beautiful architecture, Rouen is the perfect city in France to visit when you become home sick. It is rich in nature filled with mountain tops, hills, gardens, and parks behind beautiful cathedrals. The city is always thriving with civilians and animals who are thrilled to engage with tourist/students. I was there for three days for a choreographic workshop with the USF Dance in Paris Program, and used all of my down time hiking the mountain that sits adjacent to the seine. After reaching the top I experienced bliss viewing the panoramic view of Rouen.
