Here is a quick update about what’s going on:
Yesterday, I successfully transitioned to the second of the four farms for the summer. Christine and Alain wanted to get away for the weekend and graciously offered to drive me all the way to the second farm. The trip could not have been more enjoyable. Driving mostly on small country roads, we slowly made our way to Les Vans, seeing churches, chateaus, and picnicking along the way. It really makes me (and hopefully you) reconsider the RT 95 style trip from Point A to Point B, because seeing small country towns can make the drive an enjoyable experience on its own.
Since the arrival, I have spent my time getting to know my new hosts. They are quite nice and have set me up in a tipi (another far-cry from Haverford) for the duration of my stay. Unfortunately, I am currently pressed for time and will need to let you know more in a day or two.
In short, all is well and I have successfully arrived.
More coming soon,
