Vorkosigan Surleau was a small village in the Vorkosigan District that included the favorite summer residence of the Vorkosigan family. Hiking, horseriding, fishing, and sailing were popular activities. A local woman microbrewed particularly good beer; people who went fishing on the Long Lake generally made sure to have some along. The beer was hung in the water; when it was too warm to drink, the water was too warm for fishing – this never actually happened in Miles Vorkosigan's recollection.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Surleau is French, meaning "over the water". When Prime Minister Vortala spoke of renaming the village as Vorkosigan Sousleau, this was a reference to Aral falling out of his sailboat often. Sousleau means "under the water".
