Such lovely, lovely photos! I could not resist any of the delicious foods you show here. I love the different honey flavors. They're hard to find in the U.S. but so delicious!

Thank you so much for sharing with us. Much love to you and Anna.

As I said to Claudie it looks like Italy there. Although I don't like Olives a festival would have been something for me too ! You must have had a lot of fun !

Heisann, heisann!

Hyggelig å gå tur på festival og marked også!
Trenger jeg å pakke varmt tøy? Ser ikke sånn ut her og nå. Jeg drar til Arles på fk fredag - og blir ei uke. Skal guide elever i den romerske bydelen og gå turen der van Gogh malte, sammen med dem. Mye spennende i vente.
art is jok(k)e(n) har foreslått en tur på vinteren også. Får håpe dere har anledning til å være med da. Ente her hjemme fra eller hvor dere måtte befinne dere da.
Kos dere med fellessiden som postlegges kl. 24, og oppdateres etter hvert som bidragene strømmer inn....
