Waffles, beer, and CHOCOLATE

... center we realized there were many chocolate shops and we should probably try at least one piece of chocolate in every shop we passed. Best. Idea. Ever. I am so pleased with my life choices. After filling up on chocolate and seeing some wonderful old churches we stopped for some real food. Of course we needed some dessert with our lunch so we had waffles! Fun fact: waffles are not a breakfast food here, they are a dessert. As you might already know, ...

... cemetery. The house has walls about three feet thick, and has been renovated inside with wooden floors and big wooden beams. All of the work has been down by Michel. We were lucky that the upstairs is practically finished, so we could stay there. Felt bad though, because he gave us his bedroom. He says he is well enough at the moment.

Jaey walked me to the train station the scenic way, by the park he took me to when I arrive the first time. It was just as lovely this time around, and I was sad to be leaving.

Taking the tunnel through the channel

Taking the car on board the English channel crossing tunnel was really interesting. We had to drive on to what was like a big train with no seats and sit in the car (eating lollies) for half an hour in our little compartment. Then we drove out and into Calais, France. The contrast between the light levels was really pronounced - much brighter light in that region compared to england so must be something with the weather patterns that just affects the British side. The countryside ...
