My stay in Dijon-eating a lot

After the little adventure, I finally arrived at an accomodation-Centre Rencontre International(CRI) in Dijon on June 15, but it was almost midnight that I went straight to bed. This time I went there to attend a course teaching how to translate French into Japanese.
CRI was more like a hostel, but they have many single and twin rooms at a very reasonable price with breakfast. The room was clean, and it also had a restaurant inside, so it was OK. But it took 15 minutes by bus from the center, so we had to be stuck there during the day...good for studying, though...
The course was taught by a Japanese teacher and there were 4 other Japanese women coming from Japan.
So the best part of my stay in Dijon was, of course, "dinner time" ! We took a bus to the center and the teacher looked around and found a good one every evening. I usually go on a trip alone, and this makes it difficult for me to have big dinner, but this time I could enjoy so many kinds of dishes at one time, and it was a great experience !
One thing I really felt sorry was even though they ordered good, expensive Bourgogne wine, I only sipped some, and gave my glasses away-I can't hold much alcohol...:(
On 18, the teacher let us have an afternoon exploring the city. So we wrapped up our study in the morning, and took a bus to the center. I first visited the Palais des Ducs and its museum which was full of beautiful sculptures, paitings and also some furnitures which were used in the palace, and gorgeous tombs of Ducs. Then I walked around the old part of the town until 19:00, then met others to have dinner together.
Anyway, even though it rained and was very cold on the first 2 days, we had good time, talking, doing some study, and having great dinner :D
