Adventures in France

I am feeling: successful
Background Noise: two people whispering in French, and lots of "typing" sounds

First - I am typing on a French keyboard, which has bumped around a few letters. To give an idea, I will now type "My day was fun, I rode the train" without looking at the keys.. and I am a pretty good typist back in the States... ,y dqy zqs fun, I rode the trqin;
Not quite the same keyboard... please forgive any errors I overlook.

I did take the train to Carcassonne - about 1.5 hours away - to see the only fortified medeival town in Europe that is still inhabited. It was incredible... I will post pictures when I get home - a long, hot day - but very fun. I have been asked directions, conducted business transactions in French, and successfully visited another town on my own without getting lost, yelled at, robbed, or in any other way harmed (aside from a couple very pesky mosquito bites and a slightly pinker than usual nose).

Miss you all!!
