Not all was work in France, oh no…I finally went to Versailles and…most important met my uncle Franzu. My uncle has been living in France for the last 40 years and we had never met. A close friend to my mom, he left Lima when he was 18 and went to Paris. We always heard about our uncle in Paris, it sounded so far and mysterious. I really wanted to meet him!. Francois , my brother, did before me and told me he was a really cool guy. He also said he looked very much like him ( my uncle is better looking).
So after a couple of emails, phone calls, we finally met at Cheville Velizy, the town where he lives near Versailles. We prepared a backpack for our picnic and off we went. The castle was closed, but it’s imposing figure was waiting for us. We went to the gardens, amazingly big and beautiful. Not many people were there ( meaning tourists) which was great.
The day passed so quickly, we chatted a lot. Had to go back to Paris as I was leaving to London the next day. We said goodbye, see you real soon!, and to stay in touch. My uncle Franzu is a really cool guy, I am looking forward to more days in Versailles taking walks with him.
