Alsace, France continued
Today the day began with some French pastries- as everyday should. We went into this place because of the massive bread loaves we saw being carted around.
Then pastry time. Soooooo good! The sign said: escargot with raisins. I think they called it escargot with raisins because it was shaped like a snail and there weren’t really snails in it, but who knows, it was good either way!
Off to Colmar, France for the morning.
We found Lady Liberty’s twin!
Colmar is the birthplace of Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi- the man who designed the Statue of Liberty. They have a museum about his works and a section about the Statue of Liberty’s creation.
Eglise des Dominicains
Caden and Aunt Andrea
Maison Pfister, built in 1537
Pictures from the Market (Marche Couvert):
I wanted to eat everything, especially one of those baguettes. Baguettes in France really are better than any I’ve had in the US. The pretzels were not as good as they looked. Cool display though.
At the most photographed point.
Colmar is really one of the prettiest small towns I’ve seen in Europe. The design and upkeep of the houses, streets, and the city is spectacular! Next up we are off to a castle!
