Valerie of the Market

As I was taking pictures of some peppers in the market, Valerie asked if they made for a good pictures, I said I thought so. We talked about my new Camera and that I had bought it just for the trip. Thing is the conversation was all in French, and Sarah wasn't there to rescue me. I told Valerie my French was terrible, but she said it was as good as her English. I must say I really enjoyed having an entire conversation in French. Most of the French speakers here will switch to English when I obviously stumble in French. But at the market the were a number of people who didn't speak English, we just made do. But Valerie was patient enough and interested enough to hold a conversation and she made my day :)

- Peace
