Forty-Four Days Until Durfort

Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? The time is flying by. I had a dream the other night that I was in a pub in Ireland of all places, trying to buy a drink but I didn't have any euros. Woke up thinking, gotta go to the bank and buy some! The exchange rate is pretty reasonable right now, $1.30 Cdn buys 1 euro. I can't remember exactly what the exchange was when I was last there in 2008 but I am thinking it might have been $1.60. I was going to say, don't quote me, but thanks to the power of the Internet, I was able to look up the historical data and guess what? I was right! So that's kind of exciting, that the exchange is so much better this year. Wonder if I should buy now or wait a month and see what happens??

In the meantime, I'm remembering Durfort, looking through my photos from last time. I took this picture of the Le Cyrano sign but never did go inside, I shall have to do that this visit.

The quench will probably look the same, I hope it hasn't dried up but where does the water come from, I wonder now?

We shall try to avoid the places with signs that warn of the danger of death. I only photographed two such spots last time, so we should be reasonably safe.

Although the urge to climb up and get a better look at these glass insulators on the hydro poles might be hard to resist. I wonder if I will be able to find one to bring home?
