Most of my time in France was spent in the south near Bordeaux and Angoulême.
Following the wine bar night I took took a bus ride with Anaïs, another friend from Ethiopia. We left from Bongolet, the Eastern edge of Paris for Bordeaux where she used to go to school and currently friend Ezana is living still.
Next day we walked around the city. First had to stop for a nice crossant in this chill bakery. Walked also along the longest street in France (Europe?) and of course it’s a shopping corridor.
After meeting Anaïs' friend for an amazing lunch we walked a bit more. I grabbed one of these pastries specific to Bordeaux. It was ok – bit too carmely for my taste. Walked to river and old slave market.
Later we drove about an hour to Angolueme – more specifically Torsac, which is where Anaïs mom lives. She had dinner prepared, which consisted of quiche and soup (let the French feasts begin).
