Lundi 18 août a été drizzily et refroidir ce matin. Cet après-midi, la température est de 18 C ou 64 F, mais le soleil est lumineux! Nous avons pris le bus pour Conforma regarder tapis. Nous voulons tapis pour le salon et la salle à manger. Nous avons trouvé deux semblables dans diverses nuances de gris et de les ramené à la maison sur le bus. Ils sont 160 cm par 230 cm. Nous avons repéré une plaque d’immatriculation, nous avions pas vu avant tout en marchant à la maison de l’autobus. Il était du pays de Maroc.. Nous sommes certainement pas aux États-Unis!
Monday August 18 was drizzily and cool this morning. This afternoon the temperature is 18 C or 64 F but the sun is bright! We took the bus to Conforma to look at rugs. We want rugs for the living room and the dining room. We found two alike in various shades of gray and brought them home on the bus. They are 160 cm by 230 cm in size. We spotted a license plate we’d not seen before while walking home from the bus. It was from Morocco. We’re definitely not in Illinois any longer!
I know I’m commenting out of order. I’m reading your posts backwards. 2 days shopping for frames and another shopping for rugs. Please remember when you return to Illinois that “BILL DOES NOT LIKE SHOPPING”. I will buy what I need and may pay a little extra, but I won’t shop around. Even when we bought our new car and bought more Wyndham points, I didn’t do a lot of shopping, but we still got good deals on both. I guess I can be patient and wait for what I think is the best price, but I won’t spend a lot of time negotiating. Now I’m rambling…time to go.
Bill: Interesting comments and I agree with you IF I’m in the USA. Remember that we don’t have a car in France so everything we do takes a lot longer with bus rides, transfers etc. But, we enjoy that. Let’s you get a feel of the real French man/woman because not everyone here has enough money to own a car and then either pay to park it or rents a garage. There are less stores here too. They carry much less inventory than stores in the USA. The store we found the frames in is located in an area we hadn’t been to before since it’s really “outside” of St. Malo. The bus even drove a mile or two on the highway to get there. We didn’t want to bring the pictures on the bus with us if the store didn’t carry frames large enough or if the area wasn’t easy to walk in or was “weird”. The first day we got off the bus one stop too early. We went into a Cora (like a super Target) to use the restroom and look around. Then we walked through their parking lot, along the side of the rode and almost another mile looking at each “strip mall” until we found the frame shop. We didn’t want to have to carry around large pictures and discover all of that. Stores don’t always have “exact addresses” here and GPS doesn’t always work in all locales. Makes things very interesting and often time consuming. By the way, I’m eating a fresh croissant as I write this, so don’t mind the crumbs.
