... After I came back out, I found Kevin and Mary and we headed back to the car via the supermarket, for a typically random old-persons grocery shop (items included oats for porridge, hair comb, milk, flour and a cats collar).

You will all be astonished to hear that we managed to return our rental car without a scratch on it! (Although we daren't say anything about the condition of the clutch…) We hauled our luggage to the train station and caught a TGV (train à grande vitesse) to Paris.
