So the first full day where I did almost no work, excluding a handful of drawings in the morning because we piled in the car and headed for the renaissance fair in the medieval walled town of Provins! This town has existed since Greco Roman times, but came to prominence in the middle ages when it was a stop along the silk road, and was famous for its Champagne fairs.

The faire was so much fun!! Much of the same trappings as an American renaissance fair:

Costumes

Meat

Weirdos

But with the noticeable difference of actual castles and fortifications
