Although the day started off poorly, with heavy rain and a fire alarm, things picked up very quickly. Our first stop was at a local market in Brie. Whilst there we were able to practise our French when we purchased items from the stall holders. We also practised our teamwork skills as we completed a quiz on the local town.
After lunch we looked around Vaux le Vicomte – a chateau in the local area. The inside of the chateau and the formal gardens were breathtaking.
We ended the day by making crepes and having a boules tournament. We were lucky enough to have the mayor attend the tournament with two of his own colleagues.
