When I arrived, I called and told Maygan I was in Corsica, and she told me to wait there. And thus our tour of France began.
First, Maygan whipped up a batch of potatoes in this giant frying pan.
We turned right to exit the islands and headed for the Basque region of France...
Here Maygan does the "I found them, there they are!" pointing dance.
Okay it's time to get real...We're heading to southwest France for some foie gras! And not JUST foie gras...but a foie gras sandwich!
As we searched the map to make sure we had thoroughly traveled around all of France, I looked to another building on the map and realized there was a building dedicated to none other than...the world!! Japans was there, Italy was there, we had to go!!
So we made a bee line for the door and headed to building E, where we were greeted by Chile to our right and Peru straight ahead, selling piles of roasted sugar-coated nuts of all kinds.
I then left to wander a bit, seeing what else was around the corner while they waited for their Irish pint, and ran back exclaiming, "They're handing out caviar and vodka in Russia!!" And they were.
And if it wasn't honey-coated...it was stringy!
And then, to wrap up the evening, we did actually go to the animal building, which was exactly what I thought it would be like...a massive stench-filled arena of animals and hay.
It's kind of a adorable...and kind of weird.
All in all, the two-story France building was incredible. It far outshone the world, which is a good self-representation of how France feels about itself. We will be going again next year. This is an agriculture expo I will be happy to visit again!
