This morning we got up early because a damn fire alarm was going off at 7 in the morning, but it was ok because it was beautiful outside and we figured an early start wouldnt be so bad
We found an awesome market on our way to the internet cafe. I love markets. Everything is so unbelievably fresh, the food is almost too beautiful to eat. And it was on a Tuesday morning that we found this market, no market would stand a chance on a Tuesday in the states. And whoever says the French are not nice to Americans are totally wrong. Maybe if youre a stupid American, but we had people giving us stuff for free and not letting us pay. The best part was we found this old woman that started following us around from stall to stall translating and helping us find out groceries for the day. It turns out that she had travelled around the US 50 years ago and the American people had treated her so nicely that she wanted to return the favor. We saw her again riding her bike about a half hour later and she insisted that we take hand fulls of cherries out of a bag on the back of her bike. So far its been a great morning. We are now headed to the park to fix ourselves some sandwiches and hopefully play some frisbee if we can find a field. I miss you and will write again soon. Love, Ryan.
Last minute entry. I just remembered this. Last night when we were walking back up the hill, eric bet me that I couldnt catch him. He thinks because I am so much bigger than he is that their is no way that I am faster than he is. Oh, not so my friend, not so. he was about 15 feet in from of me when he said I couldnt catch him, within seconds I was right behind him and instead of letting me catch him and thus swallowing a little pride, the little shit takes an immediate right into car and flops down into the road. Looks like I win again. But dont worry, it was completely safe and well supervised by myself. lATE.
