Beaucoup de fumée, peu de feu et un soir très agréable





With the firemen and women under control and no damage having been done, I hurried back to the restaurant where Nathalie and Madame were chitter-chattering, or so it seemed at the time.

My absence had been a matter of Australia-French relations and I had to explain my half hour absenteeism.

Luckily for me, my rudeness was excused and perhaps I'll even be allowed to return to this fantastic city where people and emergency services co-exist so harmoniously !

Where life and its meanings are so agreeably accepted and indulged.

Where people have a smile that comes from deep within.

Where one feels that there are so many thousand things to learn and love about this place.

Where to not return would be an offence.

No rudeness MB, just a passionate nature - how could we not excuse you for that.

That dinner in great company in the balmy night was truly one to remember.

Cela fait plaisir de vous voir en photo, toi et Mme. Nathalie aussi bien sûr, mais elle est partout en ce moment. Je l'ai vue aussi à Venise.
Le dîner a l'air très sympathique et bon !

C'est vrai, Claude.

J'ai dû attendre au Pont-du-Gard jusqu'à ce que Nathalie ait été rendue de l'Italie. (Sur mon blog).
