We've only been here a few days, but I already have a few dominant impressions:
1) “Renovated” means different things in France than in the U.S.
2) Weather.com lies.
3) Nothing in France is as far as it looks on a map.
4) Carbs, the more refined the better, are somehow “good” when you're in France.
5) We take an awful lot of daily comforts for granted in the U.S.
6) No matter where we are, Anna talks all day long. From sunrise to sundown. Speaking of which,
7) It doesn't get light here in the morning until around 9am. This is fine for us since we have no where we have to be. Ever.
8) Bread, cheese, and homemade rhubarb jam can be turned into many different types of meals.
There will be more, I'm sure. In the mean time, today's plan is to try to find the “downtown” area, which Jean-Paul drove us through the other day. It looked amazing. I'll post pics of what we find later today.
