Paris - The Final Stop

Andy Wood - Project Coach Program Director
PARIS, 11/22/10

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and this is the case today as we prepare to fly from Paris Charles de Gaulle back to the equally wet and windy and windy climes of Boston.

After a weekend savoring the sights of the City of Love - the Montmartre, the Champs-Elysees, and the fabulous history of the Chateau de Versailles, our final meeting with Fabienne Molle from the US Embassy in Paris produced some great discussion about not only the Marseille exchange, but also the future potential for further sports-leadership based programs in the future. This capped a thoroughly enjoyable and extremely productive week of experiences, in which I learned as much about the French approach to developing sport among youth as my amiable hosts did about Project Coach, and the collaborative initiative with ITD. My sincere thanks go to Julie Hooks-Davis for all of her hard work in planning and preparing such an extensive agenda, and our liaisons in Marseille for their enthusiasm, hospitality, and unwavering energy.

Au revoir!
