One essential rule of international travel: if you have jet lag, make sure there’s someone around to wake you up. Throughout our 31-person tour group’s first day in France, this rule seemed to apply anywhere and everywhere. When two students succumbed to the plush seats of the Museé d’Orsay’s auditorium, however, one of our teacher chaperones decided to take a photograph with them instead of waking them up. Of course, being with others who haven’t slept either means that you can bemoan your exhaustion together. For all of us, that day was both reassuring and draining.
