Nous sommes ici! We are here! ~ Chateau-Chervix, France

.
Although I'm still in France, and while I have a decent WiFi connection, I thought I'd show you where we are staying.

My husband, Auke, made a 360 panorama in front of the rental house using a cool tool developed by Microsoft - Photosynth.

Use your mouse to move the panorama around and your mouse wheel to zoom in or out - you might even see "Blanchette" (the little white cat that lives at the gite) as she's coming out of the building she lives in! :o)

As always, we are enjoying every minute of our stay! The weather has been very kind to us this trip.

For more on how to make your own revolving, 360 panorama, click here: Photosynth . The program is free to download and there is also an app for iPhones/iPads.

Till the next time I can get a good WiFi connection ...
au bientot!

Stunning! And complete with a kitty. Did you have to pay extra for that?

:o)Hi Doug - I'm never coming home...lol

:o)Hi Kristen!
Nope, no extra pay for the kitty! She lives here with her sister " Minette"(who is the Queen of the gite). We do however feed both of them... they love us, we love them. Nice to have some cats away from home. BTW, I've been told my cat Sacha text messages Minette... hmmm. No wonder Minette requested a specific brand of catfood ... hmmm. ;o)

Judy (off to Limoges now! maybe another panorama opportunity)
