1. Pretend you are a travel counselor. You have tourists from France who want to spend 3 weeks in the U.S. (do not include Alaska and Hawaii). Think about where you would send them and how many days they would visit each destination. Do not include what you want them to see and do but think about this so you can decide how much time they need in the different cities.
Number your paper 1-21 vertically. Write the names of the cities and the state after each number (day). If they are staying in a city two days, list it by two numbers – if three days, by three numbers, etc. Please submit this and all assignments in blackboard and you can see your grade after I grade it. If you would like to do assignments in a word processing program, you may cut and paste them in blackboard.
Don’t worry about the cost of flights.
Save your assignment in RTF format.
Due Date: By the end of week two
