Trel, Belle, and Liz again!
After a very tough week of spring break planning, goodbyes (Beth had to return to the US wednesday), and lots of homework, I was glad to be picking up Liz off the train in Dijon!
She came in on Friday...and that night we headed out to the cinema and saw Harvey Milk in English with french subtitles.
Saturday we headed into down town Dijon to the Marche (the covered market), bought some fresh raspberries, and followed the Chouettes (markers in the form of Owls that are on the ground that take you on a course all around the city and show you the major points. Later that afternoon, we met up with the boys and headed to Carrfour (the french walmart) and got food for dinner saturday and breakfast and dinner on sunday. We came back, made some tacos (as mexican as we could get them at least) and then went to a cute little cafe all together.
Our dorm has this rediculous rule that we can't have anyone stay with us for the weekend (no visitors after 10pm) so we ended up sneaking her through someone's window on the first floor. It was hilarious.
sunday we woke up late, made crepes with the boys, and then all 5 of us headed to Lac Kir, which is a cute little lake/park area just a 30 min bus ride away. We walked around in the fresh(cold) air and sat around for abit before returning back to make a big spaghetti dinner. Sunday night, liz and I watched some episodes of friends and rearraged my room--it looks so much better!
She left me this morning ...which was sad :(..but I get to see her in a little over a month when we go to Berlin.
It was so nice having her with me this weekend...a good distraction since I'm kinda getting the 1/2 way through blues...as well as the unfortunate sudden departure of Beth. On the bright side, I get to go see all of the beautiful Chateaux this weekend!
PS..sorry there aren't more pictures..but both of us forgot to charge our cameras!
