      Absolutely, yet it was taken when we were cycling not far from Blois.

      Yes, I really don’t like those pylons.

    Helen is right — it was my first reaction to the image too. I wondered if you were following our lead and doing Australian scenes on the weekend for your French readers 🙂

    I agree with William. The windmill, even though it’s a fairly standard and functional one. Great thought and design effort went into creating each country’s high tension power pylons, but unfortunately because of the way they march across the countryside it is very difficult to love them. They have an unfortunate ‘War of the Worlds’ aspect to them.

    Well, after a week of postcards from Lisbon, I thought I should find something more local – but I didn’t really succeed, did I? Of course, we saw the same windmills in Germany in July!

    When we’re driving from Paris to Blois on the motorway, at one point, we have a field of wind turbines on one side and pylons on the other. Sigh.
