La Ferte-sous-Jouarre is a typical small town situated in the valley surrounded by river and hills. Early on Sunday morning, my uncle and I decide to stroll down to town for some coffee and croissant. If you ask any Lao/French about the bread/croissant and coffee, they all said it is the best in the world. Of course, I had croissants from many different countries and I do have my all time favorite.
As we approach the town, the first thing came to mind was… This town looks pretty dead, hardly anyone are out walking. Perhaps, it is still some what early on Sunday morning. As my uncle leading me through small streets, people are staring at us and wondering if we are lost. Maybe they haven’t seen too many Asian people roaming through town and one carrying big camera shooting it away.
My uncle and I took a break at this tiny cafe to try some fresh croissant and cappuccino. I didn’t find the croissant to be anything extraordinary like all the Lao/French folk claims.
I need to learn some french before going back visiting my cousins. Stay tune for more blogs about my trip to France.
