Oh, there have been wonderful things to see and places to visit, here, where we were, in France. I have especially liked the Perched Villages. They are a bugger on the knees.
Provence is an ancient area of civilisation. In some places, they have found the earliest remains of humans in Europe. And it’s been a place of constant invasion, revolt, liberation and invasion. It’s full of history. The Perched Towns are on the top of mountains/high hills in the foothills of the Alps. Despite the knees, The Furlongs have explored them. Here are a few.
There is a market at Fayence three times a week. Wonderful food and locally made goods.
As expected in a forested area – wood too.
Every Perched village has its Chateaux and Castles.
Oh – and ancient churches.
Mr Furlong had no heart attack nor stroke. My knees survived. But our blood sugar has gone to pot!
I want to tell you about Nice – and I will – tomorrow.
