    We eat squash flowers in tacos and omelets, not here in the states, but in Mexico. Squash flowers are delicious! How will you guys use them?

    I don’t know about the quality of life…traveling weeks on end for work doesn’t sound like much fun to me. But to each his own.

      In France I get 52 days of vacation per year. 😉

      Much of the last 4 weeks was vacation. Eurobike being the only exception to that rule.

    Holly *$ù^£¨this is so weird!

    I just discovered your blog(s) today, redirected from a crappy test of the tomtom sportwatch,

    Maybe there should i had that i’m french, working in Paris, living approximatly 10 minutes from Gally’s farm; that my wife is half american, her mother living in Arlington where we’ve been spending vacation on an annual basis for, say, 10 years … My first forerunner being bought to avoid getting lost running in Middleburg’s vincinity.

    Speaking of the cueillette at Gally, prices are indeed interesting since you’re doing all the job but this spot is quite unique.

    You might know that since you’ve been living in Paris for more than a year now, but you can access Versailles’ gardens from Gally’s and run around les bassins du château. This is a nice spot; lots of casual runners but alleys are large enough.

    If you need/want some hints or intel about the area, don’t hesitate to contact me.

      Ha, that’s awesome! I was thinking about your comment today as I ran towards Versailles and along the edge of it a bit towards the end of the run.

      As my runs get longer I’ve gotta poke around that area some more.
