Serious road accident in France.
 
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34613637

A crash between a lorry and a coach has caused the deaths of over 40 people. ( mostly pensioners travelling on the coach).

Horrible.

Reminds me of my last flight into Geneva where after landing the pilot said over the intercom: "Welcome to Geneva, the safest part of your journey is over now."

That is truly awful, those poor people.
The report says they come from a small place with a population of only 700. Everyone in the town will be affected by this tragedy. Awful.

Incredibly, my husband and I are in St. Emilion tonight on a weekend wine-tasting junket. They say the wine route between here and Puisseguin is closed so a change of itinerary for tomorrow is in order which is inconsequential, of course.

Such a sad, sad thing. I'm betting the whole region will be in mourning by tomorrow. Outside of Bordeaux, the rest of this area is very rural and tightly knit.
