There are so many cows here, both beef and dairy cows. However, there is no fresh milk or cream available. All the milk is ultra-pasteurized, UHT milk and has a funny taste to me. It is one of the few things I miss from the US. In fact, I have begun drinking my espresso with sugar only! That is a huge switch for me...the cream-only-in-coffee girl. I haven't yet figured out the milk story but Maria-Adele told me the situation is the same in France. I guess all the cows are used for meat or cheese. I did read online that fresh milk is sometimes available here in large supermarkets...and Starbucks! Ha!

|There are all kinds of cars here that we don't see in the States. We love the names, especially this one, the Jumpy.|
