I’ve not been very interesting lately. Which is not to say that I haven’t been doing interesting things (quite the opposite, in fact!). But I haven’t been doing a very good job keeping this thing updated with all of the interesting things I have been doing. And since there is no adjective more interesting than “interesting,” and no noun more precise than “thing,” I will go ahead and tell you about the interesting things I did today.
As you wouldn’t know, since I haven’t yet told you, I don’t have class on Fridays, which leaves me tons of time to relax, wander around town, or travel around France. If you’d been wondering when I found the time to visit Saint-Nazaire, Angers, Pornic, and a few other places about which I’ve yet to make posts, well, there’s your answer: vendredi sans cours!
Free time to get to know Nantes has done some good, because it turns out I was terribly (humorously) lost my first couple of weeks in France. Going to Parc de la Gaudinière is a five minute walk entirely on the street on which I live, but somehow the first time I tried to get there, it took thirty minutes, and I got a bit lost in a cemetery first.
But I’ve learned the way by now. So today I was in search of autumn leaves, which was both an easy and enjoyable task.
I found a really big pile of leaves. A really big, really tempting pile of leaves.
Then I found a rooster walking around, which I guess makes sense since the rooster is the emblem of France, but it really doesn’t make thaaat much sense.
And what do French roosters say (I know you’re wondering)? Co-co-rico!
