Getting Out of La France Profonde: Montpellier


It's been a long winter, and I haven't set foot outside of Aveyron since late October. So it is definitely time for a getaway to a big city: Montpellier beckons. Last year my daughters and I stayed with a friend there for a few nights during the February school holiday, and we're ready for a repeat of the cultural, and commercial, experience. Tomorrow we will cross the Millau viaduct to a more sophisticated, more Mediterranean world.

I'd love to see the Millau viaduct someday. I know I told you before about that fascinating show I watched on the Discovery Channel here in the US that described how it was built. Really impressive!
