Playing the tourist

I'm on the move. Four weeks after arriving home, it was high time to begin traveling around again. So many places to go, so many people to see, and a hectic schedule. Not helped by the fact that I have no car, that intercity buses don't exist in France...

Guided tour in my world

Guided tour in my world

I finished work on Saturday evening. My mother owns a shop in which she sells organic products (food, cosmetics, drinks, teas) and fair trade items, as well as plants and aromatherapy medicines. I love her shop. It's all in wood so the atmosphere is really...

French countryside shots

This afternoon, my mother sent me to the "déchèterie" (which is a kind of 'waste collection site') to sort out the paper from the metal and glass into different boxes. I love doing that........ Anyway, the collection site is outside of the village so...

I'm sure I wrote it bad :)

On the frozen windshield yesterday morning, in front of my mother's shop. I just got the impulse and I had no dictionary to check whether I was writing something correct or not. Whatever... I wish you all a very happy New Year. May it be 2009, 2552 or...

Early morning

Early morning

Well, here, the first lights appear around 8.45am so "early" morning is not exactly the same than in Thailand. Not only so because of the belated sunrise but also because of the cold. In the morning, when the sun rise, the dew freezes on the ground. Right...

Nice things about being back in France

Nice things about being back in France

(I'm not going to begin that blog with rants and complaints. Am I ?) - I saw my brother !! Last time I saw him was 3 days, 1 year and 4 months ago. The time before that was before August 2007. Needless to say : I missed him a lot. And he hasn't even changed......
