In Alsace

David flew out yesterday to return to college -- before he left, we took a whirlwind trip to Colmar, France.

Stayed overnight at Chez Leslie, a bed & breakfast within walking distance of the old town.



















After breakfasting on the best croissants in town, we cycled through cornfields and vineyards to the tiny town of Eguisheim. As we passed one farmyard, a little white mutt with a distinct resemblance to Snowy chased David, nipping at his heels and spurring him to cycle even faster.

That afternoon, we took in the Musee d'Unterlinden: spent a long time pondering the Isenheim Altarpiece and moved on to Picasso afterwards.

Sounds like you had a spectacular time with your family. I'm so jealous of all your "fieldtrips" in Europe :) Living vicariously through you....

Holly--if you ever make it over here, I'd be happy to drive you around! Paris is only five hours...

I cannot imagine how amazing it must be to live in such a place, where a weekend trip leads you to such ancient treasures. Wow. You are one blessed chick.
