... penpal project, working around teaching in Surgeres. Lydia is so good that way, she said I can drop into class anytime to do that with the kids. And I know she really doesn’t mind at all.

... but we had a good time none the less and we all quite enjoyed Saintes.
Saintes is a city with (about) the same population as Rochefort, but it seemed much more busy and the downtown was also bigger with more stores, a bigger variety of stores and even an "old city" part….which is missing from Rochefort, that is usually found in most French cities I have noticed.
