Blue Skies at Last
Here is the same view down the vallley as the bad weather one a couple of posts back - just to prove that there really are mountains down there - including Mont Blanc. This is a great place to be staying. I should write a travel blog type post on the Savoie region - there is the obvious mountain scenery, but they also have distinctive architechture, cuisine, cheeses, traditions and uniquely bad wine. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a wine snob and I'll drink practically anything but I have learnt to steer clear of the local stuff here. So my mission for the next post is to get some photos of local architechture, food etc. and I'll do a proper travel writeup of the area.
