I've been slacking on my blog lately (lately being over a month…) so I’ll try to post two or three successive blog posts! I’ll focus on my fall break in this post, since traveling is always interesting to read about. I split my fall break into two shorter trips, first visiting Marseille and then Edinburgh. Drastically different, but both entirely worth the trip!

A loaf of bread from Bakers Delight at home might last up to a week before it starts going really stale or ...
You may have heard me rave about Carriere du Lumiere...it's absolutely fabulous. An old underground quarry with lots of projectors. Great art, great music. V hard to explain, as I said yesterday, it's like trying to explain Cirque de Soleile.
