We made it to France.
I’ll admit, we were in a sorry state by the time we reached our apartment in Paris. I for one, hadn’t slept in over 26 hours and we had just lugged our copious amounts of luggage through the airport, trains, and metro system. so many stairs… so much sweat. We decided to stay in Paris that night and rest up before heading to Nice.
We’ve been getting our meals from the local supermarkets and shops, keeping a list of the cheese that we’ve tried. The streets are extremely clean and quiet in France, a switch from Senegal. Its great to lay out our Senegalese pagnes in the park and enjoy a tomato/cheese/zuchinni sandwich… or even a liter of chocolate ice cream.
Ok, so we’re in Nice now and we got here by a not-so-sleep-friendly night train. Again, were dead tired and spent the first half of our day here sleeping. The Med. sea was a great refresher from carrying around luggage, plus I discovered that I can float again thanks to salt water… it’s been years. Tomorrow we’ll head to Colmar, in the Alsace region.
I love hearing French in public and on the street, not something Senegal was good at thanks to Wolof.
