Another day of cruising on the riverboat as we make our way to Provence. Today, a three hour stop in Tain l'Hermitage where we toured a winery (with just horrible wine), the Valrhona chocolate boutique (Barefoot Contessa says this is the best chocolate in the world), and an art gallery.

It gave the feeling that you ...
This week the crew trekked off to Firminy, which is a little French town that's about 3 hours away from our little humble abode. The trip went smoothly, seeing as we travelled together in a giant van, but all in all a nice 6:30am start to the day never hurt anyone. .. I think. What were we doing in Firminy you might ask?
