I read your columns and blog almost every day - figure you keep track of me, too. Remember when I said last week that the slumping economy was hurting tourism in Provence - plenty of parking, empty tables in restaurants, merchants bemoaning their fate?
Well, I take it back. Lots of cars on the roads - really adds to the thrill of driving up to Bonnieux, if you know what I mean. Parking lots are full in Gordes and cars are pulled over for about half a mile on either side of Lourmarin. I don't know what you wrote last week - I'm on vacation, after all - but it sure seems to be working over here.
Now, if Obama will just tell the health insurance companies where to go, maybe it will get so busy over here that we can all go to New York for a rest.
