Most of my knowledge of all things France come from the movies and a couple years of high school French. (My main cinematic sources are "Chocolat" and "Beauty and the Beast", and yes, I am somewhat ashamed at this fact.) However, I did find that in the beautiful little French town of Bayeux the streets are cobblestone, the patisseries are brimming with fresh-baked breads and sweets and everyone, everywhere, eagerly offers up a friendly "Bonjour!" when you pass by. Flowers bloom on every windowsill, and no patch of grass goes unadorned by cheerful marigolds and fragrant roses, even the little stone bridge over the river is draped with garlands of flowers. In short, Bayeux has delight and whimsy for days.
