We took a drive to the picturesque Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, about an hour away from Dijon. Famous for its aniseed candy, sold in pretty tin-topped boxes, Flavigny was also the location for the film, Chocolat. Here are some photos of our stroll around the village.

I don’t know if Voltaire ever lived here but this street sign (check out the old street sign above it, carved in the rock!) reminds me to re-read Candide, one of the funniest books ever, although a bit on the Pulp Fiction side.
The French often use beaded curtains across their doors in the summer to keep out pesky insects.

Roses and a drain pipe.
