A Year in Provence

A lovely, slightly caricaturised, lightly humoured recollection of an Englishman’s year in Provence. Includes food, Proven├žal customs, wine, Proven├žal driving, normalmente, food, wine, English visitors, and a lot more.
I also enjoyed pronouncing and learning all the French words used, handy while I’m attempting to learn some French.

We Are All Weird - The Rise of Tribes and the End of Normal

Sometimes a long blog post, or two, may be better than a short book. This was one of them. It has one interesting insight repeated over and over, diced and sliced and mixed in with anecdotes plenty. I’m not even gonna write what is the insight. Read Seth’s Tribes or Chris’s Long tail for the actual insight.
