I have been somewhat silent the last few days, because we are taking our first 
family vacation in ages (or so it seems). We celebrated Bastille Day on July 
14th by driving the 1400 km from Alicante to Le Mans to spend a few days here, 
celebrating my uncle Joseph’s 90th birthday, which is being used as an occasion 
for a small family reunion—besides us and the French family, my uncle from 
Florida and his daughter (my cousin) Renata, with respective spouses, are here 
too. A few images from the first two days.


Our hotel is very close to Place de la République, a large square rich in bars 
and photo opportunities, just what I need:

Joseph may be 90 but that does not slow him down too much. He recently acquired 
a new partner, Nicole (he has been divorced for many years), and we played 
pétanque, at which he excels, the day before yesterday. Inevitably, a dispute 
arose about whose ball was closest:

Such disputes can only be resolved thusly:


We had a very nice lunch at a restaurant called Le Pont Rouge. The coup de 
grace was the cheese board after the meal:

And afterwards, we visited a school that was renamed in honour of Joseph a 
couple of years ago. The school is closed for the summer break, but the 
principal came, let us in, and gave us a quick tour. More details in the 

The stay in Le Mans continues until we drive home on Tuesday.
