My little village

This morning the wind is blowing 150 km/hr. I have been awake off and
on for hours, with the shutters banging against the windows and the
wind howling. No walking to work today. I just hope the F bus is up to
the job!

Below, my apartment building. I call it a Soviet-style
apartment block, a style for which there seems to be much enthusiasm
around here. I had to get used to the look of it; even the buildings
just going up look a good deal like it. Being able to see Mont Blanc
from my living room makes up for it, though.

This is “downtown” Ferney. We have essentially 3 streets of
shops and services (and lots and lots of banks and insurance companies).
The church is at the end of the main drag, which intersects with the
street I live on. I zip in front of the church every morning, en route
to the bus or walking to work. Not sure what’s going on with the trees
here.

That’s Voltaire, above. He is the patriarch of our town.

Below, some shops and storefronts.

Must leave for work, so I leave you with just a little teaser.
Here is a peek at Annecy, where I went this weekend. It is in the
Haute-Savoie.
