Around France

See what I see! Uzes, France!

After two days on a bike in the hot sun, I needed a break. So I did one of my favorite things today …. sleep.

It’s a little hard to justify sleeping when there’s so much to see and do. I just have to remind myself I’m here to “play like” I’m a local.

The main events for the day were a walk around the back streets of Uzes to get away from the tourist area; a visit to the plaza for a glace; then shopping for something interesting to prepare for dinner. The temperature was in the 90’s so most people were trying to stay out of the sun. Like me, many stopped in shaded cafes and shops to cool off.

After a relaxing day, preparing a special meal myself was fun … and so delicious. With so many foods to choose from at the markets, it’s hard to fail!

The menu: Roasted chicken and moussaka (prepared at the meat market); asparagus with assorted tapas spreads (Saturday Market); salad with fresh vegetables, olives, spiced almonds, and my own vinaigrette concoction made from local mustard (Wednesday Market); and of course, more wine. Yum!!!

  1. Looks great, Debby! It’s almost like being there and I can’t believe I won’t be going for ages.

    Btw, if you think there’s something the house needs, let me know! The next step – in September – is to take out the shower from the bedroom to create a bit more room, maybe even for a small cupboard, and totally redo the ground floor and put the shower there. Eventually I would like to make a hammam style bathroom in the basement but it’s more than I can afford in the foreseeable future…


    • Not sure how this house could be any better ! I’d just move the kitchen stuff to the loggia . Love your CDs!
