You're right thit cho, our planet has become a village!

M what an honour! ;-)
For those who don't know you yet, I chose this video because they might know the movie "Les triplettes de Belleville" and we can also see Django Reinhardt.
I used some of his music as the background music on my video.

Ahhhhh..... Les triplettes de Belleville ! Marvellous, animated film, (even if I have to say so myself).

And yes, I recognised the music on your video immediately; Django Reinhardt is wonderful. Such a master of 30's jazz. I have selected bits and pieces of his music on various CDs but no complete album.

Salut!

That was so fun - to enjoy a little taste (ha) of Dijon and to see and hear all of you nice people. What a good time you seemed to be having. And the food shots...merci!

I still remember a fabulous meal my brother, mother and I enjoyed in Dijon so so many years ago, capped by delicious and tiny raspberries (so expensive, for us, that Mom kept the receipt and recently came across it!).

Correction. It was a cheese tasting and the photo is not in Susan's album. I must have a senior moment.

Thank you sooooo much for posting this. It is fun to see what you all really look like. Ira has been such a help to me on this site, as indeed have many of you. Seeing this made me HAPPY! Merci beaucoup!

I loved your report and video, Ira.

Many years ago I did a summer class at the Universite de Dijon and I have been back a few times since.

When my daughter did her junior year at the Universite de Montpellier, she went to visit the family I stayed with in Dijon!

Thanks so much for bringing back memories!

Hi Faux,

Coco gets all the credit for the video.

Glad it brought back pleasant memories.

I too would like to see the legendary peanut farmer in a photo but my old computer won't cooperate.

Someone please describe what i'm missing - balding pot belly or fit as fiddle, tall, short, young, old etc. And i hope it's not the naked Ira of the three word game!

How absolutely delightful!
hdm, where was the video on our GTG?
So nice to see Fodors friends enjoying France. Toronto + Madison = Dijon!
What a fabulous equation!

h, you sound wonderful - like a local

While I have spent a lot of time in Burgundy, I wouldn't mind going back there sometime on a home exchange. It would furnish me a base to have all my friends there from the Late Middle Ages over for dinner!

I will be going to Vienna in a couple of weeks for this year's trip. I will settle for that! I have an apartment near Schoenbrunn. My best friend from grad school is coming for the first part of the swap. We will also be going to Budapest for a few days. Neither of us have been there. While we both have been to Vienna before, there are always things to do in a big city like that. We may go to Bratislava as well. Bratislava is really just a day trip.

I have a car with the exchange--and there will be plenty of opportunities for wrong turns!

You're too modest Harriet! Remember all the merchants you talked to at the market, there are proofs on the video.
