It feels wonderful to be back in France. It was a sudden decision – an opportunity I couldn’t resist. I arrived on Tuesday and my luggage arrived on Wednesday after spending some extra time in Munich.
I’m staying in Olonzac and spending too much time at the cafe – it has wifi. Tonight there’s a jazz trio so I’ll be here again.
Nothing seems to have changed too much, some different shops in Carcassonne but still people sitting in the Place Carnot having lunch or a quick coffee.
The weather is gorgeous and the vines seem to be flourishing. I noticed in the Corbieres that people are growing wheat in some of the fields where they pulled out vines a few years ago. And that others have planted new vines.
It’s time to go back to the apartment and check my vide-grenier purchases! I got some sweet baby clothes for my expected grandson. If I get organized I’ll take pictures of the other loot and post them here.
