Places of memory to visit in France

France has a strong historical heritage. Places of Memory are places greatly marked by historical events, confrontations, or human dramas. These are places that are sometimes intact, or sometimes marked with a monument of remembrance, where great personalities have passed, where sometimes surprising works of military architecture stand. The memory of the suffering endured is always expressed there, because the common point of all these places is war, the last two world wars, but also those of the 19th century.

Foods to eat the day after a party

Foods to eat the day after a party. After an evening of excess and perhaps very boozy, certain foods will help us recover our full health more quickly. In the morning, avoid drinking citrus juice because it is too acidic and coffee because it maintains dehydration. Instead, prefer a glass of water or herbal tea.
