France 2016 - Day 3

Rue Visit, Chocolate factory and Goats!



We are coming towards the end of another fun packed day. It all started with Mr Bacon's boogie bedroom inspection. He discovered that several of the boy's suitcases have had a serious malfunction and have mysteriously exploded in the night. Luckily the boys are extremely tidy and soon had the problem under control!!


After breakfast, we started out on foot and explored the local town of Rue. Our guides explained lots of information about the history of the town and the chateaux which was occupied during the Second World War. It even bears the marks of its occupation; Mrs Culling has some original Nazi graffiti in her room! After our tour of the town and museum, we visited a local café where we ordered delicious chocolate chaud using our French which is getting better and better.



After a tasty lunch at the chateaux, Graham took us to a chocolate factory. We learnt about the ingredients and preparation of various types of chocolate and saw a variety of chocolates being made. At the end, we tasted a few of the delicious chocolates.
A short hop down the road was the goat farm. Madame Elienne, the farmer, didn't speak much English so she spoke very slowly for us. Mrs Blackwell helped us to understand what she was telling us and we found out that we could understand a lot of the similar words that she used. We saw and fed the goats and their kids, the cows and stroked some baby rabbits that were only a few weeks old. The braver among us then tasted various different goats cheeses.


Tonight we have a French quiz and we are all looking forward to the market tomorrow so we can try out some more French.
