It’s time to catch up with some news and information about our new home! Here’s a few photos…
The open area just next to our flats is Place Victor Schoelcher, this is a statue dedicated to him: he worked in the 19th Century for the abolition of slavery.
This is our nearest boulangerie (bakery), just a couple of minutes walk away. Unfortunately they are closed at weekends, so for our Sunday morning breakfast treat (pain au chocolat or pain aux raisins) I need to walk a couple of minutes further on: what a hardship!
Looking back from the Place, our flats are on the left.
A minute or so further on is the central market, open Thursdays and Sunday mornings; this is the direction we walk to get to Les Cèdres. The market is very small with only a few stalls.
The centre of the old town, looking back towards the Catholic Church: the tower is all that remains of the original building, a new building next door is used for services.
Flats on our route to school. Some friends from Les Cèdres live here.
Here we turn left onto voie de Wissous. There’s a nice big sign for Centre Evangélique!
The entrance to Les Cèdres, our language school.
The main door; the Church area is on the right.
Below: the entrance foyer, looking out (taken before the Christmas decs came down).
This is Joanna’s classroom: Salle Normandie.
And Chris is next door in Salle Bretagne.
The grounds are full of cedar trees, hence the name.
