First, I want to announce that I received my new U.S. passport day before yesterday. It all happened very fast, in other words. I sent in the application, a photo, and my old passport on December 10, and the new passport was delivered to our front door on December 18. I obviously filled out the paperwork correctly. The consular staff in Paris accepted my "home-made" photo (which isn't very good, really). Voilà. C'est un souci en moins...
Now back to Burgundy. On our first morning in Môlay, it was my turn to go out for the walk with Callie. Even though the weather was very gray and the light was dim, I took my camera of course. Here are some photos of the village. I have others for other blog posts.
This was the house across the street from the B&B/gite where we were staying.
As you can see, it was early enough that the street lights in the village were still on.
To my eye, most of the architecture of the village is pretty austere.
There were a lot of old stone walls like the ones above and the one below.
We noticed and admired dry stone walls (murs de pierres sèches) like these all around the area of Burgundy we were visiting. The flat rubble stones are carved limestone, I think, but I might be wrong.
