      When my hungry family asked, "Why don't we go to a nice place to eat",  I suggested France.   They liked the idea so last month we jumped on jet.

  Miami's hilarious duo, Buzz and Kathy Fleishman, happened to be onboard too. Together we made our way to, and through,  the Paris airport.  Their comedy routines made the first leg anything but dull.

The family caught a bullet train to Brittany where our wonderful French friend, Brigitte, was spending the summer.  The crisp, cool, weather was nothing like the sweat lodge we had left.


The five of us piled into her Ford Fiesta and drove to Brigitte's medieval town,  Josselin. 



It was Bastile (Independence) Day when the villagers' wardrobe steps back 800 years (but they've still got their 2012 glasses). 

  We got there late.  Straw strewn in the streets had already been trampled by jousters on horseback.  

     Not to worry.   There was still plenty of cider, wine, and beer so we chilled in the town square. As local musicians began to play we joined a circle of dancers.  

What fun, being independent in this new, exotic place.
Stay tuned as the adventure continues....
