Having been to Carcassonne I have three things on my mind:

It’s very touristy.

Cassoulet is very good.

Spanish tourists in general are ignorant rude ones.

Edit: In hindsight I was far too harsh. There were groups of Spanish tourists that behaved rude and disrespectful, but the huge majority I probably didn’t even notice.

So. Midsummer is approaching. We brought snaps, herring, dill, parsley, and we need to do flower coronets for the girls and we also need new potatoes. What are new potatoes called in french?

Should be pommes de terre nouvelles/pommes de terre primeur

Only place in France I know celebrating Midsummer will be the Swedish Cultural Centre in Paris, plus the Embassy in some way I suppose.

And us, in our little corner. There’s a good probability that we’ll be celebrating it with beer and snaps in Chateauneuf-de-pape.

To be honest, I have not checked with the Swedish Lutheran church in Paris, which used to be some kind of Swedish cultural centre.  :P

 :lol:

We actually married in the Swedish lutheran church in Hamburg. They usually do all kinds of festivities for Swedes in exile.
