"I love it here," he said, "and my host family I love. They are perfect." Victor came to Park River about four weeks ago as a part of an inter- national foreign exchange program and will spend the remainder of the school year here with his host family Cory and Lori Seim. His primary goal of learning the English lan- guage is just one of the many "new" things he hopes to experience here. "I like this place" he said, "there is surprising- ly a lot of things to do, things that I haven't seen or done before in France," such as watching the American version of Foot- ball. 'qhis football you have here is amazing," Victor said with a huge smile, "I like the mentality of it and it looks like a lot of tim to play." Victor has been to a few of the Aggie home football games and com- mented on how rough it seems to be. He noted that the sports and the fact that sports are played within the school, "is not like France." But he likes the way we do things here. "In France all the sports are after school and not sponsored by the school, it's more of a club event," he said. "Here, more kids Photo: Lain/8iri play. ....

It is situated in the beautiful Loire Valley. Per- haps it's most famous claim to fame is Joan of Arc, who saved the city from English invaders in 1429. It had also been ravaged by wars since then, most recently in World War II when the Germans laid claim to the city and much of it was de- stroyed. It was rebuilt af- ter the war and today is a beautiful thriving city. Victor has pointed out some other differences be- tween here and his home- land as well. For one, the food. "I love the food here," he said, "And especially the places that serve the fast food. It's so good!" he exclaimed. Other things that caught his eye right away was the size of the vehicles we drive here. "They are so big," he said, "especially the pickup trucks. We don't really have pickup trucks back home, or the big semi trucks. And there sure are a lot of 4 wheel- ers (ATV's) and things, too." As for the seasons, well he says, France has a win- ter but nothing like he's heard about North Dako- ta. "We get a little snow and the temperatures maybe get down to like 32 degrees, but I've heard it's a bit different here," he said with a somewhat se- rious look on his face. So far things have gone well for him. "The kids seen so fat- , here have been nice, the Yes, thinksare differ- school !s nice and I enjoy ent here,' heKaid.. "but it's it here,' he said.
