The other day, my Korean friend Somi and I walked across the river (meaning far from school) to visit a tapestry museum called Musée Jean-Lurçat and the chateau of Angers. We couldn’t take any pictures inside the museum, but the tapestries were gigantic and gorgeous, and the outside of the museum was incredible. It was built in the 1600s and used to be the Angers hospital. There was an herb garden and lots of mossy statues. So pretty! After that we practically ran to the chateau to get there before the doors closed (doors close at 4:45 although you aren’t kicked out until 5:30). We were the last people to make it inside, getting there exactly at 4:45. We got really lucky, because Somi hadn’t visited it yet and it was her last day in Angers.
We ended our day with some tea and sharing a pastry at a local Anglophone tea shop, run by an Irish woman. It was a wonderful day with my friend, speaking in French while doing some local exploring.
