In Auvergne, France

F. and I are staying at a very lovely “chambre d’hote” at Lac de Malaguet.  The room is lovely and looks out over a lake surrounded by woods and some cow pastures.  The propreitress is a wonderful cook and we are enjoying dinner and breakfast in traditional French fasion.  We have explored the countryside on foot and on bikes.  The weather has been great; we even enjoyed the lightening storm yesterday.  Today we have warm sunny weather again for our explorations of the medieval city of Le Puy en Velay.

Cucumber sandwiches, Heinz baked beans, digestives, sushi, and Dutch beer. I must be in London. I took the Eurostar train from Paris yesterday and met up with Forrest. We enjoyed a nice sunny day with a picnic in Hyde park. We had dinner last night with my cousin who has been living in London for 2 years. It was good to see her.

We will be tourists today and go to museums. This evening we will be meeting up with a Swiss friend who lives in London. Tomorrow we head to France for the rest of the week.
