I went out to get some bread today. I can tell you, it was COLD!! I think here in France it rains only during summer, then in fall it’s just cold, and finally in winter this cold turns into snow (this last part we haven’t experienced yet). But I can assure you that the bread … Continue reading

Did you know that French cuisine is part of the country’s Cultural Heritage? Unesco added it in 2010, along with Mexican food and Mediterranean diet. The problem is that you do not feel this unless you go to a two or plus star restaurant, managed by one of the country’s big chefs. But if you’re … Continue reading

You know what’s the biggest advantage of living in Croix? I cannot hear the war siren!! So the Germans can come and attack us I wouldn’t know (and I wouldn’t care to be honest). At least my day is not cut off by a creepy sound! The biggest disadvantage of living in Croix,however, is that … Continue reading
