As for the picture above, it was taken at Mont Sainte Victoire, best known for being the mountain Cezanne painted. We couchsurfed for two weeks with Maryanick and her wonderful family at the foot of this mountain, woke every morning to see it and another just as beautiful mountain on the other side.
What I also remember clealry about this place? See Lila's flip flops? We bought them for ten euros at some roadside stand. Then lost them. It was a devastating time. One filled with the heartbreak only a four-year-old feels.
We magically found them again, though. Apparently, they'd fallen out of the car when we stopped to make a reservation at La Beliere, a chambre d'hotes near Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. The owner found then, kept them and gave them back to us when we returned for our stay.
So thank you, Mr Mollinatti, yes, for a wonderful stay, but mostly for finding those shoes.
