Some nut had a vision a very long time ago, like in the year 700. The archangel Michael came and spoke to him and told him to build a monastery on a rock in the middle of an inlet in France. Well it turns out the nut actually did it. This drawing is not the monastery but is a little church along the winding streets of Mont Saint-Michel. Tons of tourists love to watch me draw. As I was sketching, a beautiful French woman who was in her late 60's, stood behind me to watch. She seemed like she was a super model in her younger years. At some point, she put her arms around me and hugged me closely. She put her cheek to mine and began to speak in French. I told her I only spoke English. This did not deter her. She just kept talking and holding me for about 5 minutes. She finally let me go and we smiled at each other. Then off she went. The French don't love tourists from other lands but they sure love me.
