Today is sweden's nation day, so let's break out a smorgasbord of celebration! Apparently, it's not a big deal in Sweden, so we'll settle with going into town tonight and maybe some pastry at lunch.
We are planning on going to the D-Day beaches this weekend, along with mount saint michelle. Today is the 64th anniversary of the landings. There are a few celebrations going on in Bayeux this weekend, but nothing too major since they are gearing up for next year I believe.
I finally got a computer and internet, so hopefully I will post a little more often now. I'll attach some more pictures and videos as well.
I found this cheese with garlic and herbs in it, it's just simply amazing. If you're a garlic lover, you'll bless this cheese. I still haven't cooked anything yet-stove or microwave. I have a few croissants in the morning, buy a sandwhich with fruit and a drink for lunch, then I usually have another sandwich for dinner (maybe a pastry for dessert????). But when you have baguettes and all kinds of meats and cheeses, it doesn't get old. It's like eating a jimmy john's slim 5 with a
kick. I may need to get my cholestrol checked when I get back. I bought some butter last week, it had the word 'gastro' in it's name, figured it had to be good. Good thing red wine is beneficial to your health, I'm counting on those benefits to outweight everything else.
But it's not so bad, we're gone on the weekends, and we usually eat in town once or twice a week, so really I only have a few meals at my room. Oh, the yogurt here is really good. I remember liking it in Europe before, but it's not as thick and creamy as the stuff in the US, it's more refreshing than anything. Everyone here eats yogurt, either with lunch or on a break at 3 in the afternoon. Everyone. Or pudding, pudding is big as well. I found the potato chip aisle the other day, it's about 5 feet long.
