Caen France

So on one of my trips to France I ended up staying at the Hotel Kyriad Caen Sud in Caen, France.  Looking on a map it appeared as if it wouldn’t be too much trouble to make my way into the city center and it was close to a highway so I checked in.  It was a decent hotel for the price, I was close to a store and getting to the downtown area was quite easy.

I’m love to walk around cities and get a feel for the culture, people, sites to see, food, you name it.  I spend several hours wandering around the downtown, window shopping, visiting some churches and cathedrals.  One in particular which I remember is called Abbey of Saint-Étienne and although I didn’t get in I did walk the surrounding area and grounds.  If you take a look, you can see the place is huge and since I felt that some significant time needed to be invested which I unfortunately didn’t have so I gave the place a cursory look.

It was early evening and I was more interested in locating a nice restaurant to enjoy some genuine French food.  I inspected the menu of several and ended up at a table on a sidewalk eating sliced duck and a salad. It was a small place and probably seated 20 or so on the inside.  The fact that it didn’t seem huge was appealing and this turned out to be a bonus as when it began to rain the manager came out and helped me bring everything inside.  I quite enjoyed the experience and the interior of the place was quite homey and the other patrons all seemed friendly.
