Last night we bid good-bye to our dear friends Charlotte and Marco for another 11 months. We have had lots of laughs and great moments over the past three weeks, but somehow it just never seems long enough. To all you scientists out there – the universe needs a “Beam Me Up” machine as in Star Trek so that we could wake up in Canada and then go to dinner in Burgundy, and then be back in time for the girls to go to school the next day.
Despite the VERY warm evening (it was around 37 degrees yesterday) we had a lovely dinner. Unfortunately, however, Clem had passed her stomach flu on to me and I sprang up at 2:00am to adopt a prayer position in front of the toilet and revisted the entire thing – course by course.
And no, stomach flu is definitely no more glamourous or enjoyable in France, although I did have the opportinity to appreciate the lovely portuguese tiles in our newly renovated bathroom at La Maison des Chaumes.
