Last month, we (Liesbeth and I) spent a delightful time in the Provence:
As usual, that means I get to switch to my French persona, as we visit new places and meet delightful people of all ages. Lots of baguettes, cheese, wine, and fruit – as usual. Life is embarrassingly good this way…
We visited a friend of a friend at this amazing spot in the Provence:
I’ve never been in a house before, on top of a hill, with a 360° view towards all the surrounding mountains. Here’s the side of the house where we stayed:
It was an incredible place to be.
The geek in me couldn’t resist peeking at the way electricity is hooked up there:
The black box at the bottom right is an earth leakage circuit breaker, which trips at… 350 mA! IOW, it doesn’t protect people, only the house wiring! – luckily, a modern 10 mA version has also been added.
Lots of personal stories, which I won’t bore you with. Been back for over a week now, but still mostly in vacation mode. I’m looking forward to going into lots of Jee Labs projects again, starting tomorrow…
A few more images from the country which gave us the phrase Joie de vivre and a lifestyle I truly love:
P.S. Liesbeth took all the pictures, roughly 600 in all – I just tagged along to relax and enjoy…
