  5. How’s all with you? OK, I’ve got a lot to tell you. In my last email I
    think I was still in Barcelona, right?
    Anyway, after that, we started to head north into France. But not
    too far… first we took the train to a really wonderful town called
    Perpignan. Typically European, lots of totally gorgeous squares
    with old buildings and a massive fort. Here’s something incredibly
    interesting. People speak Catalan here. I always thought that
    Catalan was spoken only in parts of Spain. But no, the street
    signs here are in French and Catalan.

  6. Anyway, our next stop was Montpellier, another utterly gorgeous
    place further along the coast. Montpellier is a very interesting
    place because it does not have any Roman or Greek history.
    Weird, right? Wherever you go in Western Europe, the cities and
    towns were always founded by the Romans or the Greeks. Still,
    it’s not a young city. It has one of the oldest universities in the
    world. Lots of really excellent food here too. I can’t get enough of
    the seafood!
    After a few days wandering around and enjoying the sun, we
    visited the historic city of Arles. OMG! Too beautiful! It was so full
    of historic monuments that we didn’t see it all. And I didn’t even
    know that the very famous Vincent Van Gogh painted 300
    paintings in Arles. Alex went to watch a football match while we
    were here too. Loads of fun.

  7. OK, we are about to go for breakfast so I’ll finish here. But today
    we are in Marseille. We arrived quite late last night on the train
    from Arles so we just got up! We’ve got a great view of the harbor
    from our hotel window… but that’s all I can tell you. We’re going
    to eat breakfast (yep, more seriously delicious croissants!), and
    then we plan to visit Notre Dame de la Garde, a massive
    cathedral that sits atop a hill and dominates the town. Absolutely
    spectacular!
    Alex and I both send our love. Gotta go!

  11. Katie’s letter is very informal. How
    would you re-write this paragraph if
    you wanted to include it in a formal
    essay?
