Internet connections: lacking.
Baguette consumption: never been higher.
Wine drinking: see above.
Castle satisfaction: through the roof.
In short, we’re having such a good time out and about in France that I haven’t had a chance to update this blog in a bit – and the posts I’ve tried to write on the go haven’t come through. Blame the lack of French internet infrastructure… Sara (who is going to cooking school here) told us that it was bad but it’s even worse than expected. I’d almost prefer the sweet, old-school sound of dial-up some days when it comes to trying to check my email.
Still, we haven’t let that rain on our parade, only our posting frequency. We have been zipping all through France. First, three nights in Paris, then two in Montpellier, then here in Toulouse. Along the way we’ve dealt with train delays, menu indecision, and weather that changes from street to street – it’s exactly the travel adventure I imagined.
More about the individual aspects later – we just finished a home cooked dinner made by our chef in training (salad and french onion soup!), now, onward to see what this city has to offer for nightlife!
