(written yesterday morning, mostly)
I was up before the sun this morning, anxious to be outside with my camera for sunrise. Here’s why!
For three days and nights I’m staying in Collioure, a small town in France 15 miles from the border with Spain. That is the Mediterranean Sea at the foot of “my street”! The buildings in this town are centuries old – I’m staying in a place that’s one room wide and deep, four stories high, totally rehabbed with style! But what it doesn’t have is wi-fi.
So I’m writing this brief message which I hope to send from the public library or a wired restaurant later today, just to let you know where I am and that you may not hear too much from me before Wednesday or Thursday.
I haven’t forgotten my promise to write about Sagrada Familia in Barcelona but I need good internet access to give you correct information. My next stop is a college town and I’m sure to have good web access there. I’ve been really lucky with weather on this trip –here it’s been perfect – but the forecast is for endless rain so I may have time for nothing BUT the internet soon!
When the Germans want to say that someone has it made, they say, “To live like God in France.” I guess we can see why….
And then there’s the wine, the cuisine, the sunshine in the south…
Beautiful. Now I am really, REALLY jealous. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Inspiring, your pictures and your blog.. Thanks!
