We take our CITROEN AMI on a tour of the SEIZED RUSSIAN VILLAS of the French Riviera.

This was posted on a Facebook group, Americans Retiring & Retired in France, though it is found elsewhere as well.

About GoneOffShore

Moved to France in September of 2018 after buying our apartment in 2017 after the debacle of the election. We're glad to be here, but we continue to be involved with what's happening in the US.
