A lazy day, which we needed. We slept in then met with family down the street at an adorable French cafe. There were twenty of us taking up a long table half the length of the cafe’s interior. I caught up with cousins I haven’t seen since my brother’s wedding six years ago and played with nieces and nephews who I had last seen in diapers. Lunch was good, I had a huge croque madame I couldn’t finish.
Afterwards, some of us wanderedaround the old town, visiting several churches (Holy Trinity Church is in above photo) and souvenir shopping. I didn’t find a lot I liked. Amber jewelry and linens being their main offering, but I bought some matroyshka dolls for presents and one for myself. Tucked into a courtyard I found a chocolaterie/ice cream shop where my nieces and nephews wanted a snack.
Afterwards we went back to the apartment to get ready for the welcome party my cousin arranged at an outdoor bar. We took a taxi there and found the other wedding guests in a beautiful courtyard under canopies drinking prosecco. It started to rain unfortunately, but instead of disbanding, we crowded under the canopies drinking until 10 PM.
