Last Sunday, Jacques and Sophie invited me around to their place for lunch. They live in a little village a half hour out of town, in a little two bedroom house. We had some appéretifs before the meal, including a fortified wine that tasted a bit like port, and pastis, an anise-based spirit that I didn't really like much. We talked about rugby and other sports, in our usual arrangement of no-one speaking in their mother-tongue. After lunch, we drove to Vitré to look at a castle their. It was pretty impressive, dating from the 15th century or something, and rebuilt in the 19th, and housed a bit of a museum with some tapestries, stonework and such like. After that we went back to their place for coffee, and talked about movies.
