We woke up early today and headed to Carcassonne. As we drove through the country side we finally hit the major road and stopped for gas. Due to us not speaking French and the cashier not speaking English, it took a little while, but we did eventually get gas, expresso and croisants for our journey. Also Diane accidentally ended up in the Hommes (mens) restroom of which she made a hasty exit. The drive from ...

As soon as we arrived in Carcassonne Mac and Neville abandoned ship and headed off to find a pub with the sport channel so they could watch Aussie vs England playing with one of the prolate spheroid shaped balls. Neville had a particular interest being an English man albeit living in Abu Dhabi now for a number of years.
