Lucy's assessment

I am having lots of fun here in France.F-R-A-N-C-E! I can't believe it! (Well, I guess I can.) At first the internet was working, but on the second day it stopped working and so we always went to Mc Donalds to use the internet.Then, the guy who owns the place we're staying in's friend, John Do (If that sounds right) came and fixed it, but still it was freezing a lot. Soon, we realized the problem. We had been using it o our laps and whenever you moved it, EVEN THE SLIGHTEST MOVEMENT, made it freeze. So, right now I'm sitting at the table, writing THIS, being careful not to move it. We like to go to a mountain of rock with a castle on top of it. Well, the ruins of it. There, we can see narrow windows almost like slits that widen out for shooting arrows during the war a long time ago. The first time we walked to the bibliotheque (library) we saw a big memorial that said in honor of all the children and men who died in war (in French) and beneath that it had a list of names. At night when we walk by there are lights shining red, white, and blue on to it.  We like a lot of the food here in France. I'm glad I do! Here they have baguettes. If you're familiar with them you'll believe me when I say: THEY'RE A LOT BETTER THAN THE ONEES THEY TRY TO MAKE IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE BAGUETTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AND I'M NOT EXAGGERATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bon Jour!
I'm glad you are having a wonderful time! We can't wait to hear all about it when you come home. My girls are so jealous that you have seen a real castle (even if it is just the ruins.)
Thanks for the update!

I can't wait to come and try some French Baguettes too. Oh and any other pastry I can get my hands on. Lots of talk about freezing... should we bring along a couple of blankets? (I know you're talking 'bout the computer, but it also sounds like your house is cold too).
