Qu'est-ce que c'est, Armchair Uzs? A bit of regular correspondence from the two of us, sometimes living in the small city of Uzs in the Languedoc-Rousillon region of the south of France, destined for friends, family, and francophiles who are curious about life in a small town in France. Chock full of things to see and do. Let us know what you think! And stay tuned...
