For dinner, Cara made a traditional French dish called Tarte Flete, which was potatoes, bacon, onion, thyme and red wine with cheese on top – very good and very filling. We ended the evening with some good discussion and laughs – as we reminisced about the good ol’ days!
Day 3 – Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010:
After a few hours of catching up with Kory & Cara, we got a good night’s rest and woke up to the small of wonderful pastries from the Boulangerie (which are bakeries where the Europeans go to buy all their bread). It was heavenly! We also could walk out on their balcony or just look out there window and see the beautiful Alps! Kory, Sam, Lucy, Liz and I all headed off to the market while Cara headed to a doctor’s appt. We walked from Barberaz, where they live, into Chambery, which is about 20-25 minutes. It was a pleasant walk and fun to have the kids along! The market was bustling and there was fresh produce everywhere! We ended up buying home made soap, bracelets and some cute scarves. I love markets that have local and handmade items.
We went home for lunch after a stop on the way home at a paper shop (to buy this journal), and Kory made omelets. Yum! We rested for a bit in the afternoon, then went for another walk with Cara to the chateau, where they took French class for the past year. It was pink! But not obnoxious, very unique though!
