Gordes

Hello to all,

I know, I'm a bit quiet. First, I don't have much to show, working on a secret project, then I spent last weekend with Amandine and one of her friend. Among other things, we went to Gordes this weekend.

This one of the prettiest village in the South of France, and a fashionable one too. You can find out more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordes

A few miles away, there is an old village of little stone houses. They are called "bories". Until Sunday, I thought a borie was only a shelter for sherpherd, but apparently, they were also houses on their own. In this village, you have dwellings, an oven, shelters for goats, pigs, poultry, food, etc...

Another reason for my silence is the sudden death of my PC. I had to find out how to upload pictures and blog from my Ipad. I don't master it completely yet, ...

I hope you are all well and enjoying life.
Take care!

Good to hear from you Vero. Your outing looks very interesting with all of those stone houses and buildings. My pc is about to go. I have been wondering if I should just get an Ipad. Hmmmmmm

We loved seeing the village and learning more about them. Now we are going to look them up on Bing so we can learn even more.

Good luck with your PC. Hope it can be fixed.

Take Care
