Friday Fun: More Memories of the Local Area

More higgledy-piggledy pictures of the beautiful area I have had the pleasure of calling home for the last five years…

And, above us all, the Mont Blanc floating in its haze like a ghostly apparition.

  1. Yeah, but all that fresh air, great lifestyle and gorgeous scenery is over-rated! Think of all the inspiration for murder you’ll get on the Tube in rush hour, and what better reading nook than huddling in a train station waiting room, listening to the announcements of why the train won’t be arriving any time soon. Plus, rain is apparently good for your hair… 😉

  2. We should organise a book blogger meeting in Ferney-Voltaire. Isn’t that the right place to gather book lovers?
    I remember seeing a sign “Attention chien méchant et perspicace” somewhere in Ferney.
