I went on a photo-taking excursion today, taking shots of the places where you’re most likely to find me if I’m not home. (Really, being in the city-center, I have everything I need within a short walk, so that’s nice.) I tried to explain everything in the captions so hopefully it all makes sense.
Once we move into our new (read: permanent) place on Monday (whoo hoo!), I will have to do it all over again, as I explore my
new new stomping grounds.

Where I have my coffee every morning
The marketplace next to the plaza (caddy-corner from my coffee spot)
The main drag (Rue de la Loge)
The best ice cream place because you get three flavors even when you order a petit cornet (small cone).

This weird place only sells white clothes. That’s it.
