After we had breakfast with our host Nicolas, who surprised us the night of our arrival with sauteed duck wine and music by candlelight and also surprised us the next morning with local bakery croissants, he drove us around Villabe and took us to the local grocery store where everything is locally produced, from cheese to veggies and meat. The store also had a very large outdoor garden area which offered plants and tools for sale. We bought what we expected to use for dinner.
The most delicious cheeses EVER!!
As we drove around we witnessed endless fields of brilliantly yellow flowers. We think ufos can spot a yellow dot as Villabe from space...
Paris...where Michelle believed that people were going to pop out from the windows at any moment singing a welcoming song

After roaming in Villabe we joined Nicolas in Paris and watched him jam on guitar and flute with other musicians and singers in an apartment living room. Walter joined in briefly by rattling an egg shaped shaker. The musicians were very talented but their music was a little too relaxing and soothing and we both found ourselves drfting off to sleep at certain points during their rehearsal. For lunch we had quiches and coffee and wondered whether Europe hates medium/large coffee cups because the cups were pushing thimble size!
Yay, not so scary stairs
