old orléans: chez jeanne d’arc

for the second week of holiday, a couple of other americans and I decided to take a day trip out to orléans, a smaller town about an hour from paris, by train. it was a super-fun day filled with more joan of arc (in french: jeanne d’arc) knowledge than I ever knew existed or cared to know.

a brief synopsis: orléans was the site of joan’s big battle that essentially saved france. the town is still very grateful and there are multiple statues, museums and general arc-ness all over the city.

check out the highlights:

pralines (or praslines, in french) are just as big in orléans as they are in new orleans.
