A small medieval town lost along the Doubs River, its people had dressed it up in style with vendors of all kinds bringing their hand-made goods.
When we arrived, it was -10°C ... and I was mortified to discover I had not dressed my littlest warm enough to spend hours outdoors! She clung to me as I scurried from stand to stand trying to find something knitted and woolen to wrap her in. We finally found one woman selling a red cape, and another hand-knit socks. That along with a warm cup of hot cocoa and a gentleman's blazing fire toasted her up nicely!
A carousel over one-hundred years old was set up for the children, and people drank warm cider and wine in the streets ... holiday spirit at its finest!
