Of all of our travels thus far, perhaps the most enjoyable includes walking the dogs we are sitting for through one of the small, old villages in the area. It is like a step back in time. Modern conveniences surrounded by old — old buildings, old services, old ways of doing things.
So we were in Crest, France yesterday.
We packed Jasper into the car (which Vonny and Steve, our homeowners were so kind to arrange for us to drive), and set off to this little town. We had been near it several times since arriving but had not actually walked through the back streets and alley’s.
The stores close from 12-2PM for lunch. Speaking of restaurants, we passed by one, Kléber, the first Michelin Star restaurant John had ever seen, let alone eaten in. Based on the prices noticed on the menu, he’ll not be in this one any time soon.
Speaking of restaurants, we have all heard how the French love their food. Even in the little village of Crest there seem to be a restaurant every few feet. Not all at the level of Kléber, but lots of them. Not far from this restaurant is La Salle a Manager, where we had a lovely lunch on Saturday. There are boulangerie, pâtissière, a bistro for coffee, ethnic restaurants (although not many Asian that we have noticed). Restaurants for kebab. seem popular. As we pass them by, we notice the odd alleys that make-up the village.
Today we’ll explore some other villages while we drop off eggs, from our hens, to some of Vonny and Steve’s friends. But, for now, Jasper wants to go for a walk.
Au revoir, nos amis.
Vous voir sur la route,
Bev & John
PS– oh, how I wish I had paid attention during Mr. Princes 10th grade French class!
Caring for two dogs in a small village in a foreign country
can be daunting. But, not for us. We have done it before,
As International Trusted House Sitters we get to make
new friends with all sorts of critters. The best part,
however, is making new human friends. We have rented
our home and gotten rid of most of our “stuff” so we
could explore the world, unencumbered. Join us as we
explore how to live like locals without it costing a fortune.
