What have I learned lately?
Up Coming French Events:
Dijon, where I live, saw a lot of snow during the last week of January, four days straight. It wasn't so much the amount of snow, a few inches per day or even less, but the fact snow is rare in Dijon. The first day of snow was the worst. The snow fell during the morning rush hour. Normal drives lasting only a few minutes became hour long. Luckily the morning snow was dissipated by warm weather and rain. As the week progressed snowplows were brought into action, making driving easier. By the fourth day of snow the morning drive was not abnormally long.
Last month newsletter's mentioned January is when France's premier horse race the Prix d'Amérique takes places. Kesaco Phedo won the 2004 edition in 1:12 over 2700 meters and earning half of the one million euro purse.
