Closing for the summer, On ferme pour l'été

Our village in South Ardèche, altered through Adobe Photoshop, watercolor style.
There is small hill at the back, forefront are vineyards, a castle on the right of the picture, a church, and the village spreading between the castle and the hill.


I am leaving my house here in Charente Maritime, for the summer.

I won't be very far, still in France, if you want to look on Google map, it is south of Ardèche, bordering Gard.
We will have the laptop but no broadband connection.
It is funny because when we go to Malaysia you could think that it is a faraway country and difficult to reach through Internet, you would think France is a European and developped country, so that easy to reach.
It's just the opposite, I connect easily in Malaysia at the internet cafe next door. But there is not Intenet cafe in small villages like this one in France.
This week, everyday, till I am leaving, I will show you this beautiful place.

Oh, I have a lump in my throat. Montelimar, Parc des Sevennes. Those little villages with the sleepy main street. I've been all around that area. I played Occitan music with a local band. Enjoy it and come back with lots of photos.

Tant mieux que vous vous liberez du reseau pour l'instant. Parfois il nous empeche de vivre, de respirer, de ne rien faire, n'est-ce pas? Vous me manquerez.

Oh Caroline you played Occitan Music! that's so wonderful, so yes, you know the place, I dearly hope that one day you would be able to come back, and maybe visit us.
You're right, lately, i spent more time on my blog than in my garden.

Francoise Oleron, je vais traduire pour toi alors! rien de passionnant, tu sais: nous allons partir dans notre petite maison du Sud de l'Ardèche limite Gard, il n'y a pas l'adsl dans le village, et puis, comme dit Caroline, c'est mieux pour moi de faire un break, je passais plus de temps sur mon blog que dans mon jardin ces dernieres semaines. je vais poster des photos de la région toute la semaine jusqu'à notre départ.
