April 28, 2011: Grenoble - French, New Cheese
After a morning of French conversation with the Open House group I felt emboldened to strike up a conversation with a new cheese vendor at the l'Estacade market. In fact I launched into telling him that I wanted to try all the cheeses in France without a second thought - it seemed quite natural to say this in French. What a change from when we arrived two months ago, and I dreaded having to say anything more than was minimally necessary! He kindly recommended two cheeses and offered to write down their names on the wrapping paper - perfect, since I always forget what it is I've bought. So today I bought: l'estival and bleu de gex.
