Titi for President

The French Presidential Elections are coming closer and in Vaison the election campaign is definitively heating up.

Now part of accepting this honor is to forward these awards to five other blogs I admire, so


All of these are blogs I enjoy reading and I hope you will like them just as much as I do!

Just a little photo from last Sunday's market in Izmir - don't you just want to take a bite?
