Forty Teenagers and an Autobus

It feels good to be back on blogger. For the past six days, I have been on tour with forty teenagers, four parents, four teachers, one guide, one bus driver, and an autobus. We started in the medieval walled city of Carcassonne.

Fun history fact: the starving townspeople of Carcassonne prevented invasion by feeding a pig to its maximum limit, then hauling this full-bellied pig over the ramparts. This showed the invaders that their town was thriving so much that they could afford to feed their animals these giant meals. The invaders turned around, intimidated by the assumed strength, wealth, and power of Carcassonne.

Next stop...Les Angles.

Chocolate croissant love,
