building prices...

As you can see from this picture Chamonix is now the second most expensive town in France just after Paris ( Neuilly-sur-Seine ) and before Saint-Tropez which is only third !!! When you know that Chamonix is only a little village in the mountain it seems crazy no ? ;)

Happy new year ! Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu !

Beginning year 2007... doing what ? I just went to Geneva to buy some japanese stuff of course ( not the ferrari car lol ! )
Well this year january in french alps is quite unusual, hot and sunny winter looking more like springtime... eating some delicious cakes in spring design plates with green tea, watching snow on top of mountains and balloons flying in the clear blue sky :

Aravis mountain with 2 balloons ( from our kitchen )

Kinako ( farine de soja ) mochi and Kuri ( chataîgne ) mochi

Sakura shoyo manju " Mebukiya "... looks like a delicate cherry flower fallen on snow ... so delicious taste !

Azuki in the middle...

Eating italian " panforte " from Sienna in the japanese way, I like the yuzu ( cédrat ) and the almonds taste in it !

Ok this car fits well my scarf.. I take 2 of them lol !
