2. Italian school in Paris
James' son Luca and daughter Anna were set to attend an Italian school in the city, since both he and his sister are bilingual. Luca "came home from his first day of school with a shellshocked expression," James wrote. "He's expected to do 'architectural drawing' (whatever that is), Latin-to-Italian translation, and a kind of math he can't identify. We think it must be advanced geometry."
