New Term begins in the Renaissance
And so we are back, with some new faces and some old ones.
It is good to catch up with the boys, to see what they have been doing over the break (which included anything from walking a couple of thousand kilometres on the Camino to 'nothing - on the computer'!) and even better to be in the thick of things again.
Sunday saw a Festival at a local town called L'Herbergement. This being the Vendee, it was not the beer festival or the likes, but rather a Renaissance Festival (link Here). The whole town was decked out in Renaissance costume (or approximation) and games and stalls and the like. The food looked wonderful - we did not stay, and the dancing looked turgid - we did not join in.
But we did get boys to try to climb up a pole in imitation of monkeys and that can only be a good thing.
