brie!

I'm so busy at the moment! It's that time of year in Adelaide, and I have so much to share from Europe and so much to share from now! All I can say is GARDEN OF UNEARTHLY DELIGHTS. Brilliant. The rest will follow all in good time!

These are from Bordeaux, France. There was a guy in my class also on exchange from there, and we organised for me to visit on my way home. It is a really lovely city, although it rained the whole time I was there.

I flew to Paris and took the train south, travelling through those picture-postcard French countryside towns which I would really love to go back to!

We drank yummy tea concoctions in a wonderful tea house, went to see a movie in the most beautiful cinema I have ever been in (in English with French subtitles, don't worry! Quite strange to be on the reverse of French subtitling!), went to an art exhibition and considered re-making this video until I got distracted by the Brie range in the supermarché!! THIS WAS ONLY THE BRIE! The cheese aisle was to die for.

I also found out that you can get your baguettes delivered in the morning just like you would your newspaper - in a post box! - and that a weird cocktail of grenadine, beer and lemonade is the drink of choice for many in Bordeaux. How strange but wonderful!
