Our time in France is almost up. We have around seven days left, and after spending a month living and learning the life of the French people, we’re all pretty sad to leave. France is completely different from life in Woodland Park, CO.
The other day my mom and I were walking to the grocery store when we heard bell noises. We got a little closer, and there was a herd of cows just walking down the main road. People were on both sides of the cows herding them and surrounding the people, were lines of old cars. (Super random, right?)
The weird thing is the town didn’t shut down the roads or make all the cars take a detour. The vehicles were just slowly following along with no worries. On the other hand, at home, the road would be shut down. Cars would have some weird detour, everyone would know about the cows walk through town, and crowd around the streets with phones/cameras out. Here in Argentiere, a few people were out watching, and that was it. (Still not sure if they knew this was going to happen)
I think my favorite difference though is the bakeries on every corner and that pretty everyone goes on a hike with a baguette sticking out of their backpack. Also if you don’t feel like bringing a whole baguette on your hike, you could hike up to a refuge or a chalet and grab some lunch! (France is pretty amazing, I know!) Anyways, that’s all for today folks! See you next time.
I do believe it’s time for another adventure!
