If you have enjoyed this short article, you can visit my first two blogs: http://huberaime.wordpress.com/ and http://tabbychat.wordpress.com/ If you don’t read French, have a look anyway at some photos among more than 1000. Look also at the Archives, on the right of each page, and use the internal search engine. If you recognize yourself on my photos and wish to receive free watermarkless pictures, or if you want to do an outing or a hike with us, or merely to share impressions or feelings, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. I‘d also like you to see the beginning of my bilingual illustrated book, about my adventures in Africa in 1976-78, published in instalments on my new blog: http://huberttabutiaux.wordpress.com/2011/04/16/introduction/ Please write me there, in English or in French: firstname.lastname@example.org

A few steps of dance with the postman.
Mme de Fontenay has made the trip to present her Misses, in the company of the personalities of the area. Everybody spent a nice day and thanks to all the participants, this event was a success once again. Huberaime
