St. Remy de Provence. Anthony Bourdain's 2010 segment aired earlier this evening. CA and I were glued to the tube. Memories. Nostalgia. Longing. Yep, we could be some of those people who decide to buy into the dream.
Our version will more than likely continue to be a string of rentals over a period of years as we find our way through the scenic countryside, into the Medieval villages, amongst the olive groves and vineyards, along the rocky cliffs of the Mediterranean, letting the culture and the lifestyle insinuate itself into our lives and souls.
As Anthony Boudain says at the end of this segment--my paraphrase--it's the small moments, the incidental relationships, and especially the food that draws us to Provence and creates a longing to repeat and return.
