No matter if you are one of these~
definitely one of these~or one of these ~
one of these (jumper, in Cluny)~
or one of these, below (this is for you, Jo), in Burgundy, everyone gets lots of sunshine, healthy food and exercise. Isn't this Bulldog in great shape? Chien de Garde from Meursault~
Everyone eats food that is generally healthy and organic, if possible; with meals that are in smaller portions than in the States. Most of the bread and foods bought at the markets and small businesses are organic and preservative-free. The rabbits of the region eat greens, not pellets~
Like the chickens, everyone gets their exercise through daily activity; sort of like everyone and everything is Free Range in the area. People are working in the vineyards, walking, going up and down stairs all day.
there is no gym or yoga studio in Beaune, people work & walk & bike around & mind what they eat. There is little "recreational exercise" here as it is incorporated into daily life instead.
R took these Chicken photos near Louhans, after crossing a field, with the high telephoto, and came back with very muddy shoes. In return, his shots are great. Why does the U.S. confine commercial chickens? Yes, sorry, the almighty dollar and profit margin, but I assure you, the alternative is much better~
for all of us! This last pic was taken as some food came out, and the birds flocked there; otherwise they are out in the field. More on Louhans and Bresse later. I feel so good after this vacation, clean air, exercise, great food and great wine, in moderation. Can't wait to return.....
