From Champagne (the town of Vertus on the south end of the Côte des Blancs) and from Bourgogne (that's Burdundy, at Chablis). Maybe this will convey the feel of walking on the sidewalks in small French towns. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
The weather here is cold, especially early in the day, and clear. Summer is a fading memory. Predictions are for a slightly warmer but much damper week, with rain by Tuesday. I'm looking forward to that.
