    Happy to see you ensconced again with beautiful Provencal sun and Devon looking so happy.

      An ice cream a day keeps the doctor away.

    Hello, I like your website! I learned about it from an article in the Huffington Post. I am 55 and my stressful career as a finance person is fizzling. So I am thinking about retirement. I am thinking about buying a modest apartment in Aix, for the purpose of living there six months each year (the other six months in Los Angeles).

    Would you say there are some nice neighborhoods, where I could perhaps spend a bit less than downtown Aix, but be able to walk or take the bus into town easily? Also, is there enough to do, or would I get bored? I speak French almost fluently. Can you get jobs there (I am an EU citizen, so a work permit is not a problem)? How did you arrange health insurance? Thanks for any suggestions and help!

      Thanks Gregory. It’s on hiatus til I get back to France this spring. But there’s lots of information there that’s still relevant to the traveler.
