France and other things

Tomorrow!

My little sister and my friend are already on their way.

After lots of planning, we are still sitting on a bunch of unfinished details. But the 3 of us have decided that even if we lounged around and did nothing for 2 whole weeks, we would still have a blast just being together.

But doing nothing is NOT the plan. Instead, we have plans to attend class, visit friends, browse the market, make complete meals out of olives, tour various cities, and do lots of other together things. We will see what actually comes to pass and how exactly it comes to pass… I’ll let you know in a few weeks.

Meanwhile, enjoy a few pictures from a recent (and brief) trip to Lyon, France. Although the trip was not a vacation, we managed to spend an afternoon touring parts of the city. During my trip, I discovered a few things about France, namely:

  1. The French are snobbier in my mind than they are in real life.
  2. French food it incomparably better than Spanish food. Sorry, Spain.
  3. French is hard to fake. I can’t even say merci with the right accent.

We were amused by the rental scooters scattered throughout the city, waiting for their next passenger.

I’m still trying to forget how good this chocolate mousse was…
