I know what you’re thinking and no, unfortunately, this is not a city for drag queens. Quite the opposite in fact. We went to Draguignan to say hi to our friend’s aunt who is a nun in a convent there. Apparently the funny name of the town comes from an old legend about a bishop, called Saint Hermentaire who allegedly killed a dragon and saved a bunch of people back in the day. Strange story, but I'll take it.
It was cool to see how they live and it was quite impressive to see all the handiwork these charming ladies do! They’ve renovated the whole place themselves! We learned about their efforts to help others in need, and it definitely inspired me to find new ways to volunteer in my free time. The nuns were all very kind and invited us to a delicious lunch and a tour of the town.
