Europe 2009: Cluny

The village of Cluny is an ancient medieval pilgrimage site. It was the sight of a massive Abbey that was destroyed during this time, and townspeople used the rubble to build the present-day town.

We went out for a four course dinner while in Cluny. The food was lovely, but the greater accomplishment was ordering in French for the entire group.

This is a terrible picture of me, but the pistachio chocolate dessert looks fantastic!

I purchased wine for friends and carried it all the way back to Colorado. I was terrified that I would find vin rouge dripping from my luggage when I claimed it Washington, DC after clearing customs.
