We are in Aix-en-Provence. The Hotel Pigonnet is magnifique. Didn't really think how diificile it would be to drive in other side of car with left foot excellerating and doing clutch in a manual car whilst driving on other side of road. C'est tres difficile!! Poor Pod must concentrate while I admire the countryside and repeat instructions from our new best friend, Tom Tom. Thank dieu for him. Et grand merci to the Walmsleys for downloading greater Europe with much difficulty and lending him to us.
I must say that the difference in the French 25 years on is that when we try to speak French, they swap to English and make things easy for us. 25 years ago they just said they didn't understand us and stood there while we groped for our translation book. They smile and speak slowly for us to understand, whereas before they made things very difficile. Maybe now they are more geared for tourism?
It is 11pm, 7am en Australie. We have just returned to hotel from another stunning meal... thank goodness we are walking so many hours per day!!!
So much to do, so much to see, so much to say and so little time!!!
