November is not for sightseeing

I finally took my mom out "sightseeing" the day before we left for the US. In my defense, the weather is generally pretty terrible in November, gray and rainy, and this year was no exception. Neither was the day we finally went out.

So we went to the nearby village of Haramont (I was surprised at its size, having imagined it to be about the size of our village - it was much larger, more like a town).

Then we stopped at the Vauxbuin National Necropolis (nécropole sounds nicer in French, though), a World War I cemetery we pass by every time we go to Soissons, but at which we had never stopped at yet.

Word to the wise, if you want to go visiting in the area, don't come in November!
