4 Days in Nantes

Well, I finally made it to see my friend Francois and hang out in good old Nantes. It was good to see him and to explore a new place. It’s yet another nice french city with much to see and drool over, including the coolest Carousel and giant robot elephant I’ve ever seen (yes James, a GIANT elephant), and the most deadly sculpture. We stayed in his parents place/museum in the countryside an hour and a half drive outside of Nantes for the first 2 nights and wow, what a place they have. More boat oriented stuff than any museum I’ve ever been in, and super cool. What a nice family and all the friends I met were great, even if I couldn’t understand them 😉   I then spent the last night at his uncles places 20 minutes out of Nantes and met Francois’ dog. I swear that dog has a secret stash of cocaine somewhere…so much energy, it can’t be normal. Anyway, after an epic french translation fail, I left all my clothes in the first house so I was a little stinky on my final day, but I think the locals just though I was carrying some of the fine local cheeses in my bag so no one seemed to mind. I did a little sightseeing and there’s a great idea in Nantes called Le Ligne Verte, which is a green line painted on the ground that goes all around the city for the tourists to follow, so I did just that. Then I helped out in my friends new barber shop, rearranging things and generally making the place more awesome than it was already, haha. All in all, it was a great 4 days away and only and hour or so flight from Lyon. I love living in Europe, it’s so easy to travel even though I did almost miss both flights 🙂 Good times Nantes, I will be back, oh yes, I will be.IMG_0133 IMG_0136 IMG_0137 IMG_0139 IMG_0140 IMG_0142 IMG_0147 IMG_0150 IMG_0151 IMG_0156 IMG_0158 IMG_0162 IMG_0163 IMG_0165 IMG_0166 IMG_0167 IMG_0179 IMG_0180 IMG_0182 IMG_0183 IMG_0185 IMG_0190 IMG_0195 IMG_0200 IMG_0201 IMG_0202 IMG_0204 IMG_0205 IMG_0207 IMG_0211 IMG_0212 IMG_0220 IMG_0222 IMG_0226 IMG_0234 IMG_0238 IMG_0245 IMG_0249 IMG_0253 IMG_0257 IMG_0260 IMG_0269 IMG_0274 IMG_0275 IMG_0278 IMG_0280 IMG_0281 IMG_0283 IMG_0284 IMG_0286 IMG_0288 IMG_0297 IMG_0299 IMG_0300 IMG_0301 IMG_0304
