Rouen is mainly famous for being the place where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake:
But it also the home of the Rouen Cathedral, made famous by a series of paintings done by Claude Monet (do you see a theme?)
|I'm holding a postcard of one of Monet's paintings!|
I tried to channel some of Monet's artistry by making my own sketch of the Rouen Cathedral:
I had a very "impressionistic" result at least:
There were many other fine sites to see in Rouen, which was a smaller and calmer city than Paris. Such as this very cool, ancient clock (you could take tours to see the inside):
And a sign signifying a whole street of pie! Yum! I imagine each house having its own specialty--apple, blueberry, cherry...
|The Sasquatch says it doesn't really translate to Pie Street, but I don't care.|
But instead of pie, there were frozen macarons.
|I was not really that disappointed.|
|I love the animals!|
Because there I found...
|Oh la la! Is it really my book?|
|or as it's known in France as, La Ou La Montagne Rejoint La Lune!|
