school // just a way to get closer to crepes....

^ Place Hoche...asleep when I pass through in the mornings but quite vivid on the way home

I haven't been able to blog very much about daily life here mostly because I feel like I'm always doing something new and more exciting than blogging... Life is still far from "normal" but I'm beginning to adopt a routine of sorts. My school sits in the middle of old Rennes so there are plenty of boulangeries and patisseries all around and they've become a bit of a habit...oops. School ends at 6 pm some days, so of course we're all famished and sometimes stop for a snack. Last week there was a particularly picturesque walk home, complete with crepes, so I snapped a few pictures to share...

^ a kind soul recommended Sanchez to me and called it life changing...

^ it was a bit too cold for their delicious looking ice cream so we saved that for another day...

^ i opted for a crepe de caramel beurre salĂ©e - caramel made with salt butter, a Breton specialty 

^ maria went with an extremely photogenic gaufre (waffle) with speculoos...think the delta airplane cookies in butter format

The crepe and the gaufre were both absolutely delicious, even if we made a total mess of ourselves while enjoying them. 

Goal for the year : learn to eat a sweet crepe without emerging covered in Nutella.

...btw (for those of you in Rennes) the guy who makes the crepes is super cute...

** p.s. pro tip for all readers = crepes and French pastries are scientifically proven to make all homework and studing easier...or at least more fun**
