We were very impressed with Provence. In particular, we found the people to be very friendly to us, despite our very limited skills with their language (Doreen had a few years of French in high school). We also enjoyed a very favorable exchange rate, making all manner of lovely wines, delicious food and beautiful crafts more affordable than we had expected. Imagine the surprise that a group of California wine amateurs felt at being able to choose between dozens of tasty local French wines, none of which was more than $5.00 (US) per bottle!
Well, another terrific Maller Family adventure comes to an end, but the memories will last a long time, and we may find ourselves in France again some time in the very near future. Au revoir!
