Firstly, it turns out I’m not in Paris. This is a complete surprise to me, as I really thought we’d be in Paris. Instead, upon landing in Paris we were picked up by a colleague and driven for three hours south east of Paris. Ours is a tiny town called Villaferry.
The little place we’re staying at is called Le Vergersous Les Vignes. Anyone care to translate (Jill?)?
The town is situated deep within a maze of narrow paved roads and beautiful landscapes of farmland. Here’s a picture of the landscape.
We ate dinner rather late so additional pictures in the dark were not possible. But I’ll try and wake up early tomorrow to take a few pictures before the day of work begins.
For the foodies amongst us, dinner included: salad with a side of fried calamari, roasted duck breast, local cheese and bread, and ice cream and tart.
France is delicious.

dear mike d.
let’s pretend we are normal americans who have no concept of geography and I invite you to hop over from France to join me in Egypt for tea with milk. ‘Cause I am plum-starving for some clever social observations coupled with doodles, recipes and graphs on coffee shop napkins and impromptu group singing. Sound good?
This sounds like a great plan. I could definitely use friendly banter and tea with milk.
WOW!! What a destination for a business trip. Beats the heck out of a pipeline factory in Dongying, doesn’t it?
Yeah, this location is a winner to be sure!
UM YEAH YOU SEE WHY I WAS JEALOUS. Have fun!!!!!!
The name means “the orchard in the vines.”
