Today we had a fairly calm but interesting day. My host mother and two brothers and I went grocery shopping in the afternoon. It was very interesting to see all of the different foods and brands in France that don’t exist or are much less popular in the US. Later, my host mother and brother and I went to a nearby mountain to pick thyme plants to use as an ingredient on pizza which we will have for dinner later this week. We followed a small rocky road up to a water tank that fire fighters use to fight wildfires in the area. The tank provided a vantage point to look down over a beautiful view of Garéoult, Rocbaron, and the surrounding countryside.
