My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Musée du Nougat Arnaud Soubeyran

The town of Montélimar is known for its nougat so Jed and I thought that we should learn a little bit about it today.  We left the downtown area where we live and travelled just a few miles south to Le Musée du Nougat Arnaud Soubeyran for a free visit where we saw real bees working hard to make the honey that goes into the nougat as well as men rolling it out and forming it into rectangles for us to buy.  We came away with just one small purchase: orange-flavored chocolate nougat with bits of almond in it.  Jed liked the old Peugeot delivery cars and trucks more than the production line.
