The first half hour or so of our rides in the early dewy mornings, our rough d茅jeuners outside the little caf茅s, the long, drowsy afternoons under the trees, watching the lazy life of the road鈥攖he wine wagons and the bullock carts and the sunburnt men and women鈥攁nd the brown, dusty children with their goats鈥攁nd the quiet evenings under the stars when we have either sat alone saying nothing or else talked to the patron of the auberge and listened to his simple philosophy of life.
