Some news from Bretagne VIII

Lets talk about Brittany or Bretagne or Breizh (Breton). The days are a bit cloudy and cooler but surprise yesterday was sunny and hot and even beach time; we were by Port du Crouesty and Port Navalo in the presqu’ile de Rhuys. Today its cloudy and muggy with some wind, and we are home, as the work week begins in earnest as well as school time.

I like to tell you about a wonderful place near me in Saint Avé near Vannes where I work. They told me about it and just try it last week, it was a wonderful experience of artistic expressions,music and arts.  The L’Echonova is at 1 Rue Léon Griffon, 56890, Saint Avé, and the webpage in French is here http://www.lechonova.com/. The best by car is to take the expressway N165 coming from Rennes or Paris take exit Saint Avé, coming from city center Vannes go out towards rue de bilaire on the road D126. You can, also, take the bus line 4  to stop arrêt Briqueterie right at the corner of the auditorium. http://www.tpv.fr/index.php?keywordsDep=vannes&keywordsArr=saint-av%E9&rub_code=4&comDep=0&comArr=0&section=4

Another great event is the Celti’Vannes, coming up September 20-23 2012. It is already 17 years of events showing the Celtic tradition of the Bretons. You will have expos, theater plays,conferences,concerts in cooperation of the many Breton associations and schools in the Vannes area. webpage in French from the mayor’s office of Vannes,http://www.mairie-vannes.fr/default.aspx?sid=4089

Very quickly all over France will be the days of heritage celebrations or the Journées du Patrimoine ,where many historical and artistic buildings are open to the public,allowing you to see a bit more of the beautiful history of France. Our area is no exception and on September 15-16 2012,the area will have many buildings open to all.  These are the activities in the Vannes area in French and pdf file, http://0.cnstlltn.com/master/43ffba6d-d4b6-4666-8c06-d4d5efcd1d21/43ffba6d-d4b6-4666-8c06-d4d5efcd1d21_134.pdf
