France of olde

a day at the races



PUY du FOU. . We visited Puy du Fou.. It was kind of like a Disneyland of French history.. I really liked it.. There was a section about the Viking invasion.. It was reenacted with ships, flames, and a Catholic miracle.

Then, there was a medieval village, an 18th century village, and lots of people dressed for the time period.

The biggest attraction was the Gallo-Roman coliseum.. It was amazing.. They even had chariot races and Christians thrown to the lions.. The only drawback was everything was in French.. No English at all.. I guess the French believe everyone should speak French, n'est pas? Even though I didn't know everything that was going on, I was still very glad that I visited this site.
