These photographs and notes are from our three-week trip in July. We spent most of the time studying French at the Coeur de France Ecole de Langues in Sancerre, and then returned to Paris for a final night at the Hotel de Crillon.
This was the view from the dining room window in our apartment on the second floor of La Thaumassière. It was relatively cold during the first two weeks we were there (daytime high's in the 50's), and it rained frequently, but rarely throughout the day--the sun could generally be counted on to make an appearance at some point during the morning or afternoon.
Hommage à Henri Cartier-Bresson
We've always loved this famous photograph of a supremely self-satisfied young boy on the streets of Paris, taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson in 1952. I find this image of Teresa, taken on the streets of Sancerre in 2007, to be equally charming.
