Before we left the Vanoise National Park area, we visited a nearby village that happened to be hosting a medieval festival. I captured a brief look at midieval food rituals in France.
Once we arrived at Alan's mother's weekend house in the Chartreuse Mountains of France, I basically laid down my camera and didn't pick it up again until it was time to pack and go home. I took some photos of family and friends but was a total slacker in not capturing the fabulous meals we enjoyed. I did, however, remember to take a shot of Alan's mom's birthday cake. It comes from one of the most well known patisseries in Chambéry and is made to look like the flag of Savoie, this particular region in the French Alps. It was filled with wild blueberries and was beyond delicious.
In case you are wondering, the first baby is our nephew, Emeric. He is 16-months and was, as you can see, swimming in affection from his older cousin. The other children belong to our friend Ouafa. She and her husband are the proud parents of Adam, 2 years, and twins, Sofia and Yasmine, 6 months.
The last two photos are visualizations of items we enjoyed plenty of during our stay in France. So long summer vacation. See you next year.
