Au Marché de Valence
I love the outdoor markets in France. The cookies were not the only thing beautifully presented - even the vegetables were picture-perfect.
I haven't update my blog in a couple weeks because (surprise, surprise) I'm on vacation!
Everything is going wonderfully and life really is beautiful here. I have been able to see quite a few of my friends from when I lived here in 1999-2000. I lived with Gérard and Maryse Montalon, who welcomed me back into their family, which is still growing. I was at the house at the same time as two of their granddaughters: Céleste and Léane. The second day I was there we got the news that Léane had become a big sister. Her twin brothers, Yanis and Timéo, were born early in the afternoon. I haven't seen the twins yet, but the next blog will have photos of them I'm sure.
While the Montalons went to visit the new babies I went backpacking with a friend in the Vercors. The trails were well marked but somehow we managed to get lost several times. We had a good map so it was never a big problem, but it reminded us of the trees in the Lord of the Rings that move to make everybody walk in circles.
I don't have a lot of other adventures
My Eiffel Tower that shows the way home to Cornas. Crussol is an ancient castle, inhabited in the Middle Ages, that has become the symbol of the region.
to write about yet. I'm spending most of my days hiking in the hills and vinyards around Cornas and reconnecting with my friends from lycée in Tournon.
I'm still on summer vacation.
