Today Carolyn and I headed up to town to pick up lunch supplies ( quiche, sandwich…). We then loaded up and headed on the short drive to Alesia. This is a famous area were the war between Vercingétorix (the Gauls) and Julius Caesar (the Romans) took place. There was a brand new visitors center with great exhibits introducing the battle. They also had demonstrations by both the Gaul soldiers and a Roman soldiers. Half way through we took a break and had or delicious lunch in a nice park.
Afterward we visited the site of an ancient Roman town then went to see the giant statue of Vercingétorix.
Back at home we had our wonderful appies before heading up the hill for a delicious pizza dinner. We ordered in our best French and got about 60% of our order right. It was all delicious. The grand finale was creme brûlée, it was excellent.
