The last time I was in France I bought a quilt magazine.
Actually, it was the only time I have been to France. My one and only trip to Europe was in 2011 and I chose to spend two days in Dijon. Dijon is a beautiful city with cathedrals and ancient buildings, free museums and centuries of history. My high school French was border-line adequate to buy some souvenirs and order meals. I spent the first day walking the heritage tour called the Owl's Trail. The English guide book says it takes about 1.5 hour; it took me eight hours and 120 photos.
As I was traveling on my own I decided to stay in my seedy hotel room after dark. The only English language television channel was CNN and the evening's program was 'This Week in Uzbekistan.' I got settled with some Farmer's Wife blocks to hand piece and opened the quilt magazine.
