The next few days we spent in Angoulême. Went round to see a market – though a bit too late. Found a cool old door, oh yea and this castle. Anaïs’ mother works in a Mediatheque – she is the manager and set it all up, it is nearby so we visited that one as well.
We then when shopping – also happens to be Anaïs’ temporary workplace, the U.
We got back to Torsac and took a walk around the village. Its super small – and pretty spread out, roughly the population of about 600 people. There is an old chapel and some cows basically.
After dinner – again amazing, we went into town to meet some of Anaïs friends. We also happened upon some French rap. After the bar we went to Illiana's house.
Here’s some weird pics from chillin.
Next day we had some more amazing food: foie gras and a really nice stew with rice. After we walked around Angouleme with Manon (sister) and Illiana. And I caught the TGV around 6pm. Scored heavily on this French trip - mad food and great company. The more I travel around Europe though, I just want to rent a car and take it through all the small towns. They seem to have the most character and they fit my style a bit more. I like a nice slow pace and relaxing atmosphere. Maybe its just because I'm on some kind of holiday. But research too!
