Arrived to Grenoble and Clotilde, Emmanuel's wife, met us at the train station. She drove us to their home north of Grenoble where we spent a lovely weekend. Guillaume, their son, was gracious and let us use his bedroom during our stay. Clara, their daughter, took us on a tour of her horseriding stables where she is taking lessons. We grilled in the backyard, swam in the pool, savored Clotilde's delicious home cooking, toured the downtown, ordered a pizza and watched a movie - all in all a weekend at home, away from home. Merci beaucoup to everyone in Emmanuel's family for making us feel so at home in their home.

Au revoir
