I love living in cities but I hate going into cities.
I like the convenience of having everything nearby when you live in a city and not having to plan. So when I’m in my little village and I have to go in town I have a tendency to drag my feet.
I had to drag by feet a couple days ago but I do like Grenoble, and I like what they did with the tramway track.

View from above of Voiron… home of Rossignol ski, Chartreuse liquor and Bonnat Chocolate! We even manage to pinpoint grandma and grandpa home.
The little white mark (it’s a Stone quarry) on the mountain on the horizon marks La Rivière and our summer house. It’s also the road to the South of France and La Vallée du Rhône.

Lost teenager in the woods.
1) while stepping foot outside of the darkness of his bedroom, he was blinded by the sunshine and took a wrong turn.
2) mother forced him to show her that he was still capable of standing upright and putting a foot in from of the other i.e. walking
Verdict: Teenagers do survive several hours in nature without WiFi. They start angry but then gave in and sprint in front of you like little goats. However they will never admit they enjoy it. “Yeah that was ok” will be the highest compliment you will receive.

Three years ago today we were embarking on our next posting to Singapore (after 3 years in Beijing).
The initial posting was for 2 years but we had hoped for a little longer… well here’s to our 4th year in Singapore. So far like clockwork we’ve alternated between 3-year posting and 4-year posting (three 3-year posting and this is our third 4-year posting)
Also almost 5 years ago I started taking a picture each day (different from the ones I post here as those are not entirely synchronized with my daily life) and making photobooks with them. China chapter is done now need to work on the Singapore chapter.
