Newsletter January 2015
After a lack of snow and cold that delayed the opening of some ski resorts in the Alps, nature hit with a vengeance. It happened on the last Chassé-Croisé - crisscrossing of the year. That's when the mix of those coming back and those going on vacation crisscross on French roads.

Wine and Cognac Tour
In the early fall the Bordeaux and Cognac regions are fully tuned for the upcoming harvest, la vendange. The smell of fermenting grapes is spread all over and tractors are riding off and on pulling huge lorries filled with grapes to the wineries. The weather conditions, the quality of the grapes and subsequent wine is the talk of the town in the South West of France.

January 25th, 1912

Chalet Bibendum
A unique holiday home for winter ski and summer holidays in Chamonix. Open year round. Ideally located in the tranquil, picturesque Savoyard hamlet of Les Bois, a 5 minute drive from the center of Chamonix and a short walk to La Flegere lift. La Flegere is well known for skiing and snowboarding in winter or hiking, mountain biking or golf in summer.

Charlie Hebdo - Found
It took a few days but I finally bought a copy of Charlie Hebdo. I had to wake up early to do it and get to the Tabat before sunrise.

January 11th, 1910
Avenue des Champs-Elysees from a postcard postmarked January 11th, 1910.
