The real epitome of our Provence culinary experience came as a complete surprise the next day in Cassis.
American contacts remind me that great U.S. cities, like Chicago, only came into their own in their second century. So is this Miami's (118 years old) century?
Ever dream of being married on the Tuscan countryside in Italy? Well what if you didn't have to travel across the country to make that dream wedding a reality?!
This just in, no more than a thousand years ago. Greece's greatest days -- millennia actually -- are behind her. The country's signature monument, the Parthenon itself, is so day-before-yesterday.
At the end of the day we are not customers to Facebook rather we are products that offer cash potential to advertisers (their true customers) based on every online move we make. Facebook knows it. We know it. Zuckasaurus knows it.
I love arts festivals, especially the opportunity to see so many new and interesting and challenging performances, and the Spoleto Festival dei 2Mondi was really amazing.

It's hard not to idealize a place where one neighbor presses apple cider while the other makes cheese for your evening tartines.
Prof. Thomas Piketty's book, Capital for the Twenty-First Century, certainly has stirred up plenty of debate and political posturing. It is unfortunate, however, that no one has considered the demographic backdrop behind the economic trends.
It's well past time for President Hollande to issue a strong response to this incident and others like it. If he does not, it will send a clear message that tolerating or even spreading hatred is acceptable in France.
Lebron's return to Ohio was far more important then literally the one thing the REST OF THE WORLD cares most about: soccer (futbol). Gotta love 'murica;)
