FINALLY!!!! After only 7 months of living here, I toured the palace in Compiègne yesterday!!! It was beautiful, sunny and high-60s, and there were TONS of people in the gardens, but not too too many in the palace itself. I thought the tour was really informational and when we were done, all I wanted to do was run home and read-up on my French history!
I didn’t take many pictures outside, because not much is flowering yet, but I took LOADS of the palace!!
As promised, here are some photos of my new digs. It’s not much, but it’s cheap and I have everything I need.
Okay, now that I’ve shared that awesome news, on to my surroundings…
This building is used as administrative offices.
So, this is where I live. Note that the kitchen has 2 full size refridgerators, an oven, a 4-burner stove top, AND a microwave!!! Also, there is a coffee maker, so I am really set here. I can even cook, as soon as I get a bit more comfortable in the supermarkets.
