The Frogmarch

Something to do as you eagerly await the next Frogmarch post

We're getting ready to go out of town again--sticking to our one-trip-per-month schedule even though it's only been 2 weeks since we got back from Paris (which counted as our April trip). May is heavily laden with holidays in France: there's Labor Day (the 1st), then Victoire (what we'd call V-E day, the 8th), then Ascension (the 17th). Since Ascension is on Thursday, everyone in France takes Friday off, too, and heads out of town on Wednesday night.

So for our May trip we're taking the long weekend to spend a few days at a quiet B&B in Nowhere, Provence, with some sightseeing on the itinerary but also ample time for just lazing around the pool in the sun.

I probably won't have time to put together another post before we leave, as I have 436 things to do before then, so here's something to amuse yourself with:

Flickrvision, which uses Google Maps to plot photos from around the world as they're added to the photo host site Flickr, in real time. Truly random pictures appear and disappear, ephemeral as dreams.

All right, I've got to go try to find Hi-8 NTSC videotape, buy some Orangina for the road, and check prices on petanque balls.
