June 1st we painted in the friendliest village in all of France, Virieu. Raining again, so we sat under the old covered market roof to paint, and Valerie brought our lunch and created a picnic for us complete with table cloth, fine food and even candles. As we were finishing lunch a villager named Pierre stopped by and offered to bring us hot coffee from his home. He brought delicious coffee, china cups, suger in a cute box, so sweet. Then he invited us to visit his home and see his garden.
