France is better than expected. Okay, I didn't give it much credit, since I had just spent 2 weeks with the English bashing it for various reasons. Plus I was exhausted, had two overpacked suitcases, and had to switch back into work mode. But last night we had dinner in this tiny little village called Honfleur. It was beautiful. Apparently this is where Samuel Champlain disembarked from in the early 1600s as he set sail and eventually landed in what is now Quebec.
