Flag of France  , Brittany,
Saturday, March 13, 2010

So... Friday morning and we have big plans to go back into the city of Quimper.  We are determined to find shopping that is not the French version of Wal-mart.  Finally, around 11:45, after three women have each taken their turn in the one bathroom, we get in the Renault (Twingo) and head off.
20 minutes in we realize no one brought the map, oh well that map never did us a lot of good anyway!  We seem to have managed so far, we follow our instincts.  One of the great things about France is they have these roundabouts at most every intersection.  I have found you can stay  on these indefinately, or at least until we all agree which way to go! It's not too hard because there are usually signs everywhere telling you where to go you just have to make sure you know what the signs mean.
We eventually found a few different commercial areas with lots of shopping and grocery stores.. After exploring in the Twingo for awhile and trying out an asian restaurant we finally ventured into their version of wal-mart. To our surprise it was like a tiny mall and this was where all the clothes stores were. After we got a few new things we went into Leclerc (their wal-mart) and found english cd's! So now we can listen to something other than the same 20 songs over and over again.

When we got home and tried our cd's in the stereo we discovered that it doesn't actually play cd's and that we would have to use our computers to listen to our new cd's. We went over to the bar around 8 so Emily could talk to her friends via Skype and the girls could hand in the rest of their homework. It was a pretty quiet evening just hanging out and trying to listen to music. The weather is staying really nice so we'll be able to spend more time outside and going on adventures in our little car.
