Newsletter October 2014
I'm doing something a little different with this newsletter. I'm listing 10 things you can do in Southern Burgundy, that you can't do in Paris. This is my response to '10 things you can do in Paris, but not in the US'.

October 11th, 1911

Ecomusee de la Bresse Bourguignonne
This living history museum is located in the town of Pierre-de-Bresse. Housed in the 17th century Chateau Comtes de Thiardnd the museum is a celebration of local life as it once was. There are displays of traditional life and trades from bygone years You can also learn about the natural history of the Bresse Bourguignonne.

Chazelle
This quaint hamlet near Cormatin is centered on its Romanesque church. Construction on the church started in the 11th century and in 1926 it was declared a national monument. A Gothic chapel was added to the church in the 15th century.

October 3rd, 1918
La Conciergerie in Paris from a postcard postmarked October 3rd, 1918. The bridge is Le Pont au Change. La Conciergerie is part of the Palais de Justice and was once a royal palace and prison.

Wild Mushrooms
If you ever see people walking in pastures in the autumn chances are they are looking for wild mushrooms. Some might be looking for the 'black gold' of mushrooms truffles, or another less expensive local variety; either way whatever they find will be well worth it.

Montparnasse Train Accident
On October 22nd 1895 in Paris, a train on the Granville line failed to stop and crashed into the street. The train, arriving at Montparnasse station (then known as Gare de l'Ouest), stopped only after crashing thru Montparnasse's front facade ending up almost vertical in the street below. At the time, the end of the line was only a few feet from the Montparnasse's front facade. So there was little buffer room between the terminus and facade.
