The Barefoot Blogger has stayed out of trouble… until last week
A road trip from Uzes to Provence
I’m beginning to think that, perhaps, I understand some of what is around me.
There’s a bit of music and, of course, tango dancing at the Mairie (town hall)
There are few words better than “explosive” to describe the late night parade in Uzes that accompanied Fete Votive 2015.
Summer bobo chic fashions are everywhere.
For five full days we packed in as much history, animal adventures, and fun in the south of France as we possibly could.
Special friends are on the way to visit the Barefoot Blogger, including my dear 10-year-old McKenna. Planning the 7-day visit has been easier than you’d think.

I’ve had a wonderful time in the U.S. with family and friends; and now it is time to continue my life-changing adventure in the south of France.

French opera, performed live in New York, broadcast live at a cinema in Uzes — with French subtitles.
