Anna recorded Sonny's version of the first song of Demodocus. It seems appropriate as we leave Troy bound for Ithaka. Woops. I mean to say... approach our departure for Paris on 30 April. On May 2 we board the TGV, a 216 mph train, to Arles where Eric & Martha will meet us. The boat will launch on Monday May 5. Eric says our initial destination is Porquerolles, the largest of the Hyeres Islands. OK! I'm liking this already.
