This is the final post of our BLOG for our Provence trip. This morning, I took our trusty coffee grinder out and ground up the coffee we purchased from the little Torrefacteur Vieux-Nice shop, Cafes Indien, just a few steps down the Rue Droite from our apartment in Nice. After all the effort to locate a grinder in Nice, this morning was sort of anti-climatic.
In spite of flight attendant strikes, volcanic ash eruptions and rail strikes, we made it home on time. Leaving the sunny Mediterranean for rainy Washington was not easy, but necessary to provide for future travel opportunities.
