That last bit is French for Part Two. I rather like the way it looks in English because you can almost read it as Second Party, which is sort of where this post is going. If you manage to stick with me through this post, I have a very important (well you how I am – I think it’s important) question for you.
If you read any of my posts back in late February/early March, you saw that when we were in the UK we spent some of the time with our British friends Lex and Elanor. I would unofficially call that Cultural Exchange – Une Part (Part One).
Now it’s time for the Second Party! Cultural Exchange – Seconde Partie. And this cultural exchange is not on a sophisticated, intellectual level, mind you. I mean, really – me? Sophisticated? Intellectual?
Lex and Elanor arrived in time to do the teddy bear show where Lex took this photo of my husband and me in clothes we seldom wear. Looking at this photo, I ask myself, who are those people?!
Earlier, he also took this one of us with Elanor. Just so you know it wouldn’t matter what we were wearing when Elanor is in the picture she makes us all look fabulous. You have friends like that, don’t you?
Okay, so while they were visiting us in North Carolina we took them to one of the largest outdoor craft fairs in the South. My sisters were there and one of them took this photo of us. (Thanks, Sis!) Can you see, after looking at all the booths we still managed to smile even though we were nearly done in?
In these next few photos, you might get the impression that all we did was eat. But that would not be entirely true. Nearly but not entirely.
We had to have pie.
All of us, including Sebastian, went to watch a baseball game. Can you get more American than that?
Oh yeah you can, if you wear a baseball cap.
We went to our favorite coffee shop where one of the baristas took this photo of all of us. Thanks Katie!!!
And of course, being in North Carolina, home of the famous and delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts, we had to go see them being made and have a few of their “Hot Doughnuts Now”. Yep, that officially makes this cultural exchange complete.
We did do a whole host of other things too, but mostly we talked and laughed and enjoyed each other’s company.
And finally, here’s my question for you, dear readers. Each of you lives someplace probably very different from me. If Lex and Elanor and Jay and I were to visit you, what one or two or three places where you live would you take us?
