The Canal Saint-Martin is one of my favorite place in Paris. I do not take enough time to walk in Paris: it is the city where I work, where every day morning and evening I take overcrowded metros. Taking the time to go for a walk and forget the daily stress, by a cold winter night on the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin. Having one pint (or two) in a nice warm café. This night of last Thursday was like holidays!

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.

Spring Lights

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.
