I love the Juras. Our friend has a second home there, just outside Poligny, so he is always taking us to all the towns between there and Geneva. I haven't gotten to Geneva yet, but I've stood at the top of Mont Rond and looked at the fountain in the lake. Fabulous hiking and eating.

As for the Dijon article, you really should come. Brad will be in residence until after Christmas and I'll be in and out for shorter stays in the fall. One thing I would take issue with in the article, though, is at the end with all the FYI stuff. It says stay in Dijon central and away from outlying suburbs. I'm not sure where he's thinking of, but I take the trams and buses to the end of the line and everyplace in between all the time. He makes it sound like the Bowery or something.

Very informative post, plus beautiful pictures. I wish I had a door handle like the one shown.
