Newsletter October 2014
I'm doing something a little different with this newsletter. I'm listing 10 things you can do in Southern Burgundy, that you can't do in Paris. This is my response to '10 things you can do in Paris, but not in the US'.

Montparnasse Train Accident
On October 22nd 1895 in Paris, a train on the Granville line failed to stop and crashed into the street. The train, arriving at Montparnasse station (then known as Gare de l'Ouest), stopped only after crashing thru Montparnasse's front facade ending up almost vertical in the street below. At the time, the end of the line was only a few feet from the Montparnasse's front facade. So there was little buffer room between the terminus and facade.

BluesKOOL
BluesKOOL is a first-time festival of American Blues and Roots music October 4/5 in Plaisance du Gers (32). Featuring three of Dublins top performers in Roots/Blues/Country styles, plus Chicagoan Tbone Kelly, who lives in Plaisance after nearly 20 years on the Irish blues scene.

Chardonnay
Chardonnay - as in the wine, is a small village but you can still stretch you legs and take a walk. There is a very nice Lavoir, wine store, restaurant and church.

Golf d'Autun

A Year in Burgundy
This 2012 documentary follows one year in the life of seven winemaking families (viticulteurs) in Burgundy. All four seasons are covered as is the magic of les vendanges (grape harvest) and the ups and downs of daily life. The movie gives you a front row seat into the lives of those who create some of Burgundy's best wines.

Past Imperfect, by Tony Stowers
Everything you wanted to know about teaching English - a non-nonsense approach to the realities of an English teacher in France. This book is in three sections - before: teaching in a provincial French city and preparing to move to Paris. During: living and working in Paris. After: leaving Paris and re-locating.
