The crooked little town of Troyes

As I mentioned last week, if we are on a road trip, we love to discover interesting places to stop on the way home.

As we left Champagne around 11am, our lunchtime fell in the town of Troyes, France.  We parked and while exploring a place to grab some food, soon designated this as the most crooked town we’d ever seen.   No, not because of any shady deals that took place.  Literally, the architecture:

Do you think the floors are level in the yellow house?

Lonely Planet highlighted an alley way called the “tiny street of the cats”, and it was crooked as well.

Gabe and Marty McFly near some teetery houses. Both being finance guys and very orderly, they were both going into hyperbolic shock from the unevenness.

Even me, who hangs up the most crooked of photos and pictures and can’t draw a straight line to save my life found it uncomfortable!

While you might not be able to live this way permanently, Troyes was still pretty cute.

Lovely architecture & skyline

By the way, in French, Troyes isn’t pronounced Troys or Troy but Twaaaah.   Before I mastered this knowledge, the French would have considered my speech a little crooked as well!
