I highly recommend the Marseille marathon – nicely organised, good route, nice views from the starting line… maybe I am a bit biased, but not that much!
I could have gone to Marseille for a couple of days but I decided not to… and now, editing all these photos, I’m slightly starting to regret.
I can’t quite remember how the idea for this smoked salmon/leek lasagna came about but it was definitely a great idea!
We know that they each give a different coloured egg but so far I don’t think anyone has tried to figure out who gives what type… so far.
Every single time I come back from Marseille, I tell myself that I should really, really move back. But living there is not the same as going back for a week’s holiday, is it? Probably Helsinki is also exciting when you don’t live here.
Even though my tendon was quite sore, I still went up my usual running route (not very wise).
It also wouldn’t be a proper Christmas/New Year holiday in Marseille if we didn’t go to the figurine mountain. This year people have outdone themselves! Not sure all the representations are really traditional but A+ for creativity.
We started off the year by a walk along the beach – and some of us decided to go for a swim… I was very happy to stay nice and dry!
We didn’t even have “salat olivier” and didn’t watch The Irony of Fate… we’re leaving some traditions behind.
Funny how sometimes a good sandwich during a roadtrip is the best thing in the world!
Two planes and a couple hours of layover resulted in a grant proposal. I’ll know if it got past the second stage tomorrow.
Those aren’t the best mushrooms out there but they’re edible… and it’s not like we get that many of them in the south to be really picky.
