A few hours later we passed the first cemeteries of the Flanders fields where, amongst the millions of others, many Australians have lost their lives in the first world war. Perhaps on the way back we can give ...

This evening we have all gone bowling. (Le Bowling ! - so not too much of a challenge there)
