Quick read of things to keep in mind for my trip to Provence this coming week. Nice turn of phrases -- "horizontal trial and error" to describe practiced nappers sharing their experiences --, good descriptions, for example the rude hand gestures, and some interesting facts. I'm currently reading Mayle's "French Lessons", which is food and wine focused, and I look forward to more detailed observations and explanations about the French culinary culture in Mayle's signature style.
