Saturdays in the village the "Pizza truck" comes to town, and we were happy to taste it! (Pizza Truck" visits other villages on 3 other nights of the week - Offerings? Everything from a "quatre fromage" (pronounced cat-r frohhhmaggg) = 4-cheese, to items such as "escagole" also known as escargo = snail, to something that J turned green just thinking about; "fermiere" with duck, tomatoes, mozzarella, tomato sauce and poultry entrails! The four cheese was absolutely delicious, and, as you can see, I fell off the carbonated beverage wagon and ordered some orange soda to go along. The Pizza Truck only visits our village on Saturdays. Sorry - no website to order ahead.
Went for a walk with J through the village, took a nice shot of the front of our apartment building (our apartment is in the back), a shot of one of the average streets looking down toward one of the rivers that surrounds the town, and finally a nice shot of a "Roman bridge", not sure if the sign is accurate, but we'll take their word for it. Also wandered along the swimming pool, is filled and looks good - but I'm sure the temperature is freezing - will be open early June. Have heard back from our international phone company - they will be sending a replacement phone for our dud - good! I am up to #6 in my cheese journal - I'm sure within a few weeks I'll have enough for part of a blog.
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch.

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
