A Vacance of Knitting, Writing, Driving through Fields of Golds………

I should emphasize the DRIVING part because that is what was a huge huge deal to me.   So, after 7 months of no driving because we live in France and we take public transportation EVERYWHERE   

and everywhere we don’t take it, we use our 2 legs to the very max, it goes without saying that missing driving can occur.  Driving to me is a necessity back in Saint Louis, because I ‘m too suburban.  Therefore, my driving is done with a fair amount of boredom.  But here – everywhere you look – when you drive – it’s  pretty outstanding.

If you happen to drive in the city, it’s outstanding because you are ever vigilant not to get side-swiped, or crashed into because it’s a nutplace out there!!!      I’ve watched from a pedestrian point of view and am totally amazed that no one bumps, runs into, crashes into, runs over a cyclist because of the fast way they drive in the city and the closeness to the next vehicle they constantly remain.

Thus, we took to the FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE and did not look back (for about 2 days!)  It was rather glorious train trip to Chartres and then renting our CAR – and driving only B roads and going through small villages, of which Rambouillet was one of my favorites, from Chartres and on the way to Fontainebleau……………
