This morning we were up and ready to go at 06:30. Armel was at the hotel with Jean-Jacques, our driver for the next few days. He came with a not-too-old Toyota Carola.

True, we have to go outside for all goods and services, but if it were proposed to put in a cafe or shop or recreation hall, I'm sure it would meet with approval. And, more to the point, we wouldn't be asked, it would just happen. Even I could only object intellectually, not emotionally.
