My personal life has gone through a significant change within the past week: I am no longer living in Sablé-sur-Sarthe.
I have said good-bye to this:
|The Neigh-bors had a kid|
And openly greeted the Plantagenêt Cité in Le Mans on Friday July 4th. The decision to move was coordinated on Wednesday July 2nd. Le Mans may only be 40 kilometers away from Sablé, but it is worlds apart.
|The Saint Julien Cathedral is Le Mans' shining architectural glory|
|Le Mans, home of the 24 Hours of Le Mans|
After two years of being surrounded by cornfields and horses, I had forgotten how noisy bustling cities can be. While I do find myself at times missing the peace and quiet of the countryside, the adjustment to having an efficient, reliable public transportation system with frequent buses and trams and to seeing people my own age makes the transition much smoother.
Plus, seeing this store whenever I walk home never fails to coax a smile across my lips.
