I'm going to Nice, whence I shall take the Cote d'Azur not-express to Aix, arriving at my very exclusive lodgings just in time for supper. (I will be sharing a bedroom with my eldest Adorable Nephew - an excellent host, he has offered to share his panda with me and tell me bedtime stories. Now be honest: did you not just say 'aww'?) Next week I'm doing an intensive French course, all the better to exprime myself en francais.
Hints for the Weekend:
What to do in Dublin:
Friday night is Culture Night! Almost enough said. I would also check out Dublin Parking Day (today) - when parking spaces are transformed into things of beauty.
What to do in the South of France:
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm planning to eat pastries, drink wine, and go to the brocante at l'Isle sur la Sorgue.
What to do anywhere:
Go to see To Rome With Love, Woody Allen's ode to the Eternal City. (Incidentally, that link takes you to a review by the wise and witty Philip French.)
