The circus and the zoo

The circus is in town and it is conveniently located in the Bois de Boulogne. When they aren’t performing under the big top, the animals are on display in the circus zoo.

Apple Cake

We were invited to Laurent’s brother’s place for dinner last night and I was in charge of dessert. I love to cook, but haven’t done much cooking at all since we have been at my in-law’s.

Afternoon in Arras

The town of Arras is located about an hour’s drive from Lille. We spent the afternoon walking the cobblestone streets and checking out the Flemish architecture.
