      ... and they gave it to me at the end of the class. Without me even knowing it! Sneaky little kids. Then in the second class of sixièmes, the teacher, Lydia, brought candy to have at the end of class and I guess they organized beforehand that everybody bring a little bag of candy to share and one girl baked muffins. This class had also sung me a song, by the Beatles. Here are the lyrics. It was the cutest thing and I think I will really remember this ...

      L’Hermione was built in Rochefort (where I’m living!) in

      ... but we had a good time none the less and we all quite enjoyed Saintes.
