One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six.

So, it's past 2am as I write this, so I am already well in my Tuesday and there are two empty bottles of Leffe beer next to me. Our lovely trip to Provence is over and work that lasted till 8pm today put me firmly back in my normal, "common" tracks. But, as the song goes, they can't take that away from me. Yes, our trip and a week we spent with Andre dede13  and Olivier was something truly wonderful. Man, it's so easy to travel if you have friends that really do their best to take care of you. So, thanks again guys, it was a total bliss and here are six pictures for six days. Each of those pictures somehow embodies the flair of that day. I might put a hefty chunks of pics on flickr one of these days, I am still not sure...

So, let's start with...

One.


It was a day full or early waking up and transfers of all kind. Mr. Rossignol wheeling us the refreshing part of the flight.

Two.


It was a day that took us - among others - to Avignon, a city full of richness and history.

Three.


Old cities, sights of history and beauty. Rich fragrances and soft colours of Provence. Les Baux de Provence.

Four.


A day off in a week off. Sometimes you need to rest from all the good , but you can still go for a dinner in La Couronne.

Five.


Le Castellet - Provence in its essence. Also when you use French essence. And then you post the pic you like.

Six.


Friends - what my world is made of. Cyril, Olivier, Andre and Iggy.

***

I am grateful for my life.

What a beautiful, poignant, quietly ravishing sequence. And a truly heroic effort on your part to put it together after such a long day at the office.

I am afraid I have never been graced with a flight attendance named Mr Rossignol. On one flight a few years ago there was a charming attendant I kept thinking of as Mr. Hostess Bear. Such cheerful, rosy cheeks, and the most adorable little moustache. He made me think of a more healthy, active nephew of Massachusetts' legendary Hat Sisters.

hugs, Shimmer

Thanks, Shimmer. Well, good memories always deserve their time and space, right? :)

I have to steal from the great Shimmer because he verbalized to the T the very feelings I feel about this post: a beautiful, poignant, quietly ravishing sequence.

Friends - what my world is made of. - enough said. One can only put it this way if one understands.

I am obliged to return the sentiment.

I am grateful for my life. - And I, you. Thank you :-)

PS
Hey, give me a little more time to wrap up everything that's going on here before we talk, ok? It's been impossibly busy and I feel bad because I don't want you to think that I'm flaking out or that our visit is not important. It's just that I really have to wrap up everything I'm doing here now (= school + work) so I can be on schedule for the launch. It's a big pressure.

Otoh, I want to be calm and relaxed when we visit to talk about everything we've been planning which I have every intention to make happen and trust that you do, too.

They seemed a little out of place there, but they made a really lovely setting. :)
