The Marché des Lices was F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.
If you like markets, scratch that- if you like food at all, you would love the Marché des Lices. I can’t wait to take my mom and sister there when they visit. There is no way to explain how massive and amazing it is, other than to actually experience it.
I didn’t want to look like an utter tool, taking millions of photos, so I only snapped a few. Here are the results:
There were even vendors making fresh crepes, to-order, while we waited. It was my first truly French crepe and it was delicious! I could hardly believe that it only cost €1!
We even caught some tap dancers performing. That was priceless. It was probably one of those “you had to be there” things, so I wont bore you with the pictures.
One more amusing thing that happened today:
As Barbara and I were leaving the Carrefour, we discovered some sort of festival going on (practically in our backyard). The best part: French country western linedancers.
No, you did not hear read me incorrectly. FRENCH COUNTRY WESTERN LINE DANCERS. There apparently is a group in Rennes and that is their thing! They were performing and I had to get a couple pictures and a video, it was so priceless. The funny thing was that they were so French the way they danced. They were all dressed up (they even had God Bless America-type denim chambray shirts on!), but they showed very little enthusiasm, although I suppose the stoic look is one the French do best. Here is the evidence (gotta love the guy in the back left):
I’ll add the video once I get it uploaded to Youtube.
There is more to say (like always), but I just don’t have the time right now. I need to clean up (myself and my room) before going out tonight. Luckily, I’ll be able to sleep in and relax tomorrow, which means I’ll probably be able to write a bunch…but don’t hold me to that!
Have a fantabulous Saturday evening.
