Two Dads and a Child in Paris

David and Michael are same-sex parents who have been married for 18 years.  Gay parents face the same issues as all other parents: how to keep their children engaged and happy while traveling. Their son, Zane, was only 7 when they first came to Paris. How do you deal with a child that age? David, who talks to us today, has great nuggets of wisdom on how to travel with children. Not only for gay parents, but for all parents. David’s interview starts at 11’50”, before the interview Annie gives advice on how to deal with strikes in France.

Cave Paintings in France around Foix, Episode 48

Cave paintings in Niaux near FoixCave Paintings in France around Foix

Today we talk about cave paintings in France near the city of Foix. So much history there, going all the way back to 15,000 years ago! And just to get warmed up, we begin with the famous tongue twister: “Il était une fois, dans la ville de Foix, un marchand de foie, qui vendait du foie dans la ville de Foix. Il se dit “Ma foi, c’est la première foi, et la dernière foi, que je vends du foie dans la ville de Foix.” Can you say it? Don’t worry, it’s not required for you to go visit Foix and the cave painting sites nearby. And unlike Lascaux, the actual cave in Niaux is open to the public and you visit with a flashlight! Enjoy the show and Happy New Year!

Foix, Niaux cave, Gabriel Fauré, the Parc de la Préhistoire, La Vache cave, the Labouiche underground river, the cave of Bedeilhac, the thermal stations of Ussat-les-bains and Aulus-les-bains , Les Forges du Pyrène, Ariège
