En Vacance

We have been offline for 10 days now enjoying the best of the south of France at a family reunion.

My high school French has been sorely tested but the staples are covered – cheese, wine, beer, coffee…what more does one need?

Fascinating observing how the locals live sustainably in this tiny village of Meyssac in the Midi-Pyrenees. In the local supermarket car park there was not one car bigger than a mini. With gas at $12 per gallon, (yes, you read that right)  SUV’s are hardly an option.To a man, they would leave their car, grab their reusable bags from the trunk and go shopping. None of this paper vs plastic debate we see in the UK, the US and Australia.
