Travel

Went to France for a month. Contrary to popular belief, including my own, I apparently don't speak French.

My toes are painted, the most scandalous clothes I own are packed and my pennies are ready ...

toes

Yes. I am really bringing all the pennies from my penny jar (I conveniently have about 3 kilos of American pennies collected over six years of living in Alaska ... ) to use in the penny slots.

And yes. It's true that the most scandalous clothes I own is limited to a full-coverage push-up bra, a slightly low cut v-neck T-shirt and a really long tank top that could possibly pass as a dress.

Last night we got to Cesana Pariol, home of the 2006 Torino Olympics bob and skeleton track. We have a few days before we start sliding, and my coach and I walked around town, stopping in at the little information centre. I about fell over with excitement when I discovered they had one of the Olympic torches there on a stand in the window.
