Le décalage horaire

Hello from Tours, France! I've been here a few days now and I'm settling in as well as I can. I had some really bad jet-lag which I'm still getting over - I don't know why, I've never had it this badly before. I've basically had insomnia at night and I turned into a zombie during the day. I must be getting old.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous so far. I know this isn't normal for Tours so I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts. I must have brought the Colorado sunshine with me:) Here are some pictures from my walk around vieux Tours this morning:

Place du monstre
I found Les Halles today, where there's a big outdoor market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I'm good food-wise for now so I just walked around, plotting future meals.

I have three boulangeries close to my apartment. I stopped in one of them today for une tradition and my weekend dessert, a pear almond tartelette.

The bread was still really warm.
Everything I hoped it would be, and more.

  1. Lovely! Although the monstre is so out of place!
