Just in the Neighbourhood

Chateau de Vizille

It’s not so often that we have guests from North America who drop by because they are just passing through, but last weekend my sister Marie stopped by on her way to Israel.

We had a great – but short- visit with her. The weather was beautiful (warmer here than in Jerusalem) and we took her to a few local sites -and had a chance to catch up a bit.

We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Chateau de Vizille, the Musée de la Revolution Française, rode les boulles (literally: bubbles – the round plastic gondola cars from the city up to the fort of la Bastille) la Musée des Troupes de la Montagne, hiked down the hill, went to the Musée archéologiqu de Saint Laurent, got fresh milk and cheese from the farm…and a bunch more.

Good times.

Now she’s in Jerusalem – and Susan’s parent arrived yesterday.
