Aside from food and drink, we really didn't accomplish all that much in our week in Annecy. We felt very accomplished once we had finished watching the whole of the TV show Green Wing, and were very proud of ourselves whenever we left the flat for a wander.
On one evening a thick fog descended over the town and the streetlamps cast everything in a golden glow. The streets that were normally crowded with people and market stalls were nearly empty, as it was terribly cold and after midnight.
In our hearts we had had a deep longing for a white Christmas. As Annecy is in the Alps and at a high elevation from sea level, it's common to get snow during the winter. Though no snow fell while we were there, the town was so beautiful that it didn't really matter. We had good food, and warmth, and funny TV shows. We also had family, and that's the most important thing at Christmas.
Today's post was almost called: Caper In the Vapor - Mystical Nighttime Majesty
