What was the most exciting place we viisited? Probably Le Roque Saint Christophe. Its habit ion for thousands of years on a cliff face only ended in the Middle Ages, and the ingenuity of medieval man in creating livable spaces using impressive machinery was fascinating.
The churches were our touchstones
We look forward to the visit of our hosts to our city of Whittier, California, where all buildings are newer than their home, which at two hundred years of age, is quite new for this region.
It is so true that travel adjusts all sorts of priorities and points of view- happily for me. I love French culture. I love their language, their priorities, their deep respect for nature and for historical preservation. I have much to learn and will begin planning a return trip as soon as I get the vast set of pictures organized when I return.
We are so grateful to our hosts and indeed to all the peoples of France. We have been treated so generously during our time here, and hope to have a chance to return the favor.
Au revoir, countryside- we shall return.
