Une crème glacée, des policiers et Limoges : 2
La Centrale Nucléaire de Civaux rushed past without a sound, and the sun seemed impatient to welcome us to the beautiful south of France.
The whole country seemed to be in harmony - et nous sommes d'un commun accord.
At Berneuil, Sabine et Jean-Marc were waiting for us beside the Route Nationale.
Quelle surprise !
The silver car stopped itself where they stood and they beamed and grinned like they'd never been taught.
We rushed to greet them and shared all our news.
They were looking for bad people and to that end we disappointed them. But we made up for it by teaching them the Aussie way of doing things and they were pleased to break the day with such a distraction.
The French are just so friendly!
And shared memories must be treasured.
And treasured they always will be.
We were now approaching Limoges, a university town in Haute-Vienne where an important member of the Académie Française once left his mark on so many.
