Last Sunday we went for lunch at Papa's house, and stuffed to the gills afterwards, Papa's Wife suggested that we go for a walk.
We as in me and she.
One and a half hours out and about and moi speaking French without anyone to help. I was conversing, and not in little words here and there, but actually forming sentences, not grammatically correct I'm sure, but who cares! French sentences were coming out of my American mouth!
And I took some photos of the beautiful Saint Michel l'Observatoire to share with my peeps (aka you).
Because there is an astronomy center in Saint Michel, walking along you'll come across different signs with astrological tidbits on them like this one...
This one said something about The Royal Society and London and Newton. Sorry I wasn't paying more attention, I was too busy speaking in French.
The sky was too cloudy to get a photograph of The Observatory in the distance so I ganked this one off the internet for you...
I know that it's a highly regarded center of science and learning and all but it still looks like something in a sci-fi movie where naughty experiments are taking place.
We'll leave my paranoia for a moment and continue on.
Follow the sign to the 12th Century Church of Saint Michel...
The super cool looking door to the church...
Kind of looks like Robin Hood might burst through doesn't it? Notice the ancient and creepy steps.
Side door entrance...
Steps not as creepy on this side.
That's it, a little tour around Saint Michel.
There were some other photos but they aren't very good at all and definitely not worthy of you my peeps.
Once again, too busy speaking French.
