We arrived in Bourges somehow nearly on time to find the meeting point, first the guy who took us from the highway to the city was quite impress that he took foreigner along the road and wanted to 'show us' to his friends. After that awkward moment we walked to Bourges which was still a distance since we were in a suburb. Finally we found the cultural house and we only had to wait for Pierre-Jean to arrive anytime, we then ate my olive cream with the bread we had in the meantime.
Then PJ (HC:pjr) arrived and we went to relax at his home... enjoying a great pasta meal and talking a lot about everything and about his arts (PJ is a art teacher).
We cleaned our bag a bit and started a laundry (at last!) and went to sleep all comfy!
We woke up slowly and then prepared to go out in Bourges for a city tour and doing silly by watching the different hidden 'asses' sculpted on the cathedral, We enjoyed the time being and kept on touring the city.
Our lunch time has been taken over by enjoying a fine french cuisine, having a great great meal cooked by his flatmate which consisted of salmon with remoulade and lots of wine
really fine french cuisine! It was really tasty but too much for me since it was a big fish... I'm not a fish eater at first place but I regret now not having savoured it more!
We came back later in the evening after that I went to shop for a book (Alexandre Dumas) and that we had a drink in a cafe... Dylan played to test my camera on a lot of blurry pictures and we went back home to eat and finally watch some movies: Brazil, Monthy Python and No Man's Land.
