Day 13: french onion soup!

Work wise I've really gotten into a postcard making grove. One of my fellow residents is buying some from me and the ladies in the Nogent post office, really liked the ones I sent out, so I think they may be a popular option to sell in the future. Here's the latest:

And for those of you who prefer to hear about the important stuff, we had truly fantastic dinner of french onion soup with melted cheese, salad and then a dessert of chocolate crepes alla mode.

Day 11 & 12 Renaissance Fair

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
