We almost got snowed in as we were leaving Krakow, Poland. Yes, it's that time of year when winter is letting us know it's coming.

Hurricane Joaquin crossed the Atlantic and got split in two by the jet stream. France got trapped in the middle of the two. Allowing cold air from Siberia to blow across northern Europe. So the Geese have arrived here on the wind too. 3 Weeks too early. Its what the remnants of Hurricanes do.

I like bridges in gardens too. Something just so peaceful about them. Here's one from Rikugien Gardens Tokyo

Great post, George, thanks! Makes me want to go to Dijon, rather than be self-isolating.

We spent a day in Dijon on the way from Paris to Lyon...and were happy to have visited the medieval core and the home store of the Maille mustard folks...but we obviously missed one of the best attractions! Oh, the bread...and the cheese...and the tomatoes: a summer dream meal right there...

If you can stay for two lunches, make the next one Restaurant Stephane Derbord on Avenue President Wilson. Take the "surprise" lunch deal; it's 28€ for a 3-course lunch with a Michelin star and the friendliest husband/wife team you could imagine. The menu changes, based on the day's special (tied to the market!) and was heavenly.

Love the market!!! I'm a big fan of French wine and cheese. What time of year did you visit Dijon? Also curious about the Canal walk. Was that sort of a "room" to "room" walk? Did you carry a backpack? How did your gear travel with you? How far did you go every day and how many days was the walk? Thanks for this piece.

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Nov. 21, 2015: Carousel in Dijon

PHeymont ·
Carousels always attract my attention—I still want to grab the brass ring, I suppose—and France seems to have more of them than anywhere else I've been. Some are more memorable than others, and this one in Dijon sticks in my mind because...
