I’ve left New York behind and find myself in Philadelphia – well the airport Marriott anyway, and it’s definitely not grubby! The bar of the hotel throngs to quite a number of people cheering an (American) football team, on (as far as I can see) 6 TV screens in the bar area – maybe it’s a local team – turns out it’s Philly vs the NY Giants. Downtown Philadelphia looked like it might be quite nice with the sun setting on its tall glass buildings, but all I saw was the cab-ride from the quite impressive train station to the hotel ($46 just in-case you need to budget).
Regarding the domaine Denis Mortet, it seems it is all-change again: The excellent Claire Forestier is once-more without portfolio as the 24 year old Arnaud Mortet is now assuming the full-time role of technical director, his mother Laurence, will continue to manage the administrative side of things. I hope that Claire will find a more ‘stable’ role soon – unless of-course she is intentionally following the (helicopter piloting) path of the flying winemaker!
There is one response to “still travelling, more news on mortet”
Bill, Philadelphia is indeed “quite nice” and a very pretty and varied city….I could have shown it to you, but…you didn’t call and I was watching the game, too. Next time?
Cabride from 30th St (the main train station) to hotel: $46…?? to the Airport Marriott….sounds too expensive….to me…
