I took this picture in Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, a lovely village in Bourgogne (Burgundy). It was in May 2011. And for lunch the restaurant was just awesome! Being French and visiting France as a tourist is sometimes funny, and perhaps a good way to speak English with tourists from abroad here in France, where all TV series and a lot of movies are dubbed. By the way, when writing this blog post I have just learned we say “second-hand store” for “brocante” in English.

I took this picture by a sunny spring day in May 2010 in Bourgogne (Burgundy). It was the end of the day, when light begins to dim and becomes like gold. I must say I cannot wait for spring. In Paris today and yesterday were our first sunny days after weeks and weeks of pure absolute greyscale weather. Days are already becoming longer.
