Check-In

Not much to report, just a lazy Sunday wandering around Avignon yesterday, since bus travel is futile on Sundays. Today we did laundry (!!!), imbibed oodles of hot chocolate (which comes in varieties here - even from automated dispensers - including chocolat chaud (hot chocolate), chocolait (a pun, hot chocolate with milk), and a third one that comes in powerful, brown-black half-cups. Chocolate, in fact, has become its own food group in France, and a main staple of my diet - often swaddled in a buttery, flakey croissant (the worst of which are still better than the good ones in New York).

Tonight we take on Marseille in search of bouillabaisse!

Whether it is hot tea or hot chocolate, keep warm and add a vegetable to stay healthy. I miss talking to you and look forward to reading your blogs.

Oh! hot chocolate and croissants....mmmmm....it is about 8 degrees here with lots of wind and some icy snow....I will have to go have my last cup of special Kate-present chocolate in a feeble attempt to wish myself into France.

I had to laugh: My husband kept wanting to do laundry in Paris! He was in charge of doing it at the home we stayed at in the Lot and wanted to keep on doing it in Paris.

I noticed that in France, even vending machine coffee was good.
