... but found a boulangerie and bought our mid morning snack of a fruit tart ... yum! We found the church as we often do because there are always nice places to sit in the shade. At that moment Geoff found he had lost his glasses - a tragedy as he was doing a brilliant job of the navigating and would not be able to do any without them.

Slaughter Day

A travel blog entry by 2totango on Sep 08, 2009

... No grand last supper for these little guys.

Of course the killing wasn't pleasant, but at least it was quick. One swift swipe and it was done.
