In the backwoods of France, quite on the Swiss boarder, is an old coaching inn. And since we've been having such rainy (depressing) weather, we thought we'd drive up to see it.
Switzerland is not green by happenstance - it is green because it RAINS!
In the courtyard behind the inn is a miniature golf course - French style. That means that things are not bolted down with precision made high-quality stainless steel parts, and that if your kids trip over things and hurt themselves... Ah bon? Fallait faire attention!
The French put beauty and charm over functionality. They are not, as the Swiss would say, "always very practical"!
I always leave France wondering why I waited so long to come back!
