Buralists

image

I stumbled on this room in my hotel Last night,  laid out for a training session today. But what subject are they training? I read “burialist” and pictured the person who operates the shovel in a cemetery. However it turns out these are the people who sell cigarettes: tobacconists.

Église Saint-Vincent-de-Paul

image

I’m standing looking at this modern church on a cold but sunny day in Paris. You can read about this church, which was built on the site of a prison, [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Vincent-de-Paul,_Paris]here [/here].

Textures

image

I love the texture created by this light dusting of snow on the trees and mountain, in the Savoy Region of France.

Snowing the whole day

image

On Saturday it snowed the whole day, which was a strain as visibility was poor, particularly higher on the mountain. It was also fairly cold and windy and we had descended and hit the bar at 15:30. Still nothing really beats fresh snow…

#BloodyCyclists

In summer I was cycling in France and as you can see in this video they also have a problem there with cyclists riding two abreast and hogging the middle of the lane!
