Off to find dragons
Hey hey gangaroonies.... Iknow it has been a while since my last post....... Well, almost a month... whew!! Alot has happened since the last post.. Mi Amiga Prima was here for two weeks.. We did quite a bit... Having a car allows you a bit more freedom to find little places that you didn't know really existed.... We found a whole bunch of little churches... Well, actually they were chapels.. word of note: small abandoned chaples are great places for when you have no where else to go to the bathroom. Yeah yeah... i know you shouldn't pee on a church... eh... okay... tee hee... We had a blast tooling around provence... acting like we owned the place. it was fun... of course whe spent time with el primo amigo too so... Now i must speak about what happens to be one of the strangest days i have ever had here....... My saturdays start like any other saturday... Clean up after the friday night before.... Not that I make a huge mess but i usually leave it until the morning... so i did the dishes and picked up my stuff... then i headed out for the market... After the market i headed to one of my favorite to places to eat... where a friend of mine was telling me that there were some chinese or lunar new year events going on here... cool, i could go take pictures.... so i headed back home after lunch... stopping at my favorite cafe for yet another cup of cafe.... oh la la no sleep for me tonight... i headed back home to drop off my goodies from the market. i headed out in search of dragons... yeah kinda like martha in tarascon.. yet my dragons weren't a threat... these are good luck dragons.... after searching and searching i found no dragons.... Rat balls..... but i did find a funky band of dudes playing beatle's tunes... rather badly... the weird thing is that they had old couches and toilets sitting near their little stage. trying to listen to them play... oof if you could call it that?? i was pretty bummed out.. no dragons.... i headed to the cafe where i tap into the internet.... and i heard chinese drums and fire crackers... AHHH DRAGONS!! i found them but they were running away from me... quick mel catch the dragons... so i ran after them... tee hee camera in tow they passed by and made their way to the place du repbulique where there just happened to be a wedding and the band playing beatles tunes.. AWESOME..... chinese drums a really bad band and a wedding... WHO SEES THIS STUFF?? Well, i had found my dragons and i got my good luck for the year... It's the year of the Rat.. my year.... woo hoo so unlike martha in tarascon i did not conquer these dragons i tickled one on the chin and took his picture... Well, kids that's it from Roman Gaul again... I am off to see what i can see..
