Good King René was a well-loved character in the history of Provence. He was responsible for bringing many of the lovely things we enjoy in our little French lives here in Aix: culture, wine-growing and apparently an all-round good nature.
He was my favorite in the parade...but more for his hypnotic style of dancing in the street.
“Leslie landed in the lavender and olives of Provence in 2004...fork in hand...” so began La Fourchette in 2006. Fast-forward to this moment...with survival issues managed (every ex-pat knows what I'm talking about!), I returned to my metier of psychotherapy and La Fourchette took a back seat...but it was a wonderful ride!
