Christmas in Brittany
I will not celebrate Christmas in England after all. Since yesterday, my wife and I are in Brittany. We were lucky enough to go by ferry, not by train or plane, as winter and snow have hit England hard. Well, "hard" is relative: I can't believe it disrupted life there with what is after all not even a storm. Anyway, as I said it here in French before, the Vikings were right, Hell is, for many people at least, made of ice and cold. (And yes, the last sentence is an excuse for me to plug previous posts.) I find the drama in the UK slightly absurd. It seems that we have been lucky travellers, but I am an unlucky expat, as I love snow, especially and I here it is green, as the snow that fell recently is now gone. There is still time, but alas so far it looks very green outside.
