Old bread oven

In the small village of La Réunion where my step parents live there is still an old bread oven.
It is not used anymore.

Highway and canal

At this place, the highway and the canal are so close that we can have it in the same picture.
It's a little bit noisy !
This valley is a really old communication way, there are a main road, an highway, a canal and the rail.

La Place de la Volaille

Why "Place de la Volaille" ? Simply because a famous poultry market was taken place in the late 19th and early 20th century.

The future city hall ?

The commune of Baziège has bought this estate just in the center of the village.
The large house will be easily converted in a brand new City Hall and the large lot will be transformed in a pleasant green way open to all in Baziège.

DP Theme : What your city is known for : LOTO

Perhaps you have checked out my previous post, it was more conventional : streets, buildings, ...
But Baziège is so small and known only in our area. Nothing is renowned, except the Chapel of Sainte Colombe. But I prefer something more funny, so I chose a typical activity of Baziège people : LOTO (or BINGO). Every week or more all year long (but more in the beginning) a LOTO is organized by a local association (soccer, public school, fishing club, ...) to get some money for their activities. They take place in the Village Hall.

You can see here the Community News Bulletin : every week at least a LOTO !!

There are currently 136 blogs participating in this theme day:
