J'aime la France!

We made it! We're sitting outside at a cafe in Langres drinking lambic (not at all French, but so yummy). We seem to have shaken off the jet lag and the weather is great, so no complaints here!
We flew on Icelandair, which was a little bizarre. They only had those distant teeny screens to watch, and the inflight movie was "Tootsie". I'm quite sure that movie came out before some of you were born. It made the film on the second leg of the trip, "Sleepless in Seattle", seem cutting edge in comparison.
We rented a car at Charles De Gaulle (you'll be happy to know we've already made our car stinky with cheese), and headed to Fontainbleu for our first night. . Fontainbleu is a very pretty town, and the chateau is amazing. Then we headed east towards Switzerland.
I forgot to put pictures on the laptop before we headed out, so I'm afraid I have no eye-candy for you. In fact, I have no reason to be writing this post at all except that I was so excited to catch a signal that I hopped onto blogger. I'll try to give you a post that's more worthy of your while soon.

Random note - my blogger page is entirely in French - "modifier le code HTML" , "Moderer les commentaires", etc...
Time to "Publier".

I think it's funny that the ad by google says "Fat Belly" under the blog about eating cheese and other yummy things! How do they know?
Glad you are safe and sound. Eileen
