As we drove yesterday we changed our minds and headed to an old haunt we have enjoyed in the past to shorten the journey and it was a pleasant drive along an ancient canal parallel to the Cher river with nice stops, one for lunch! We arrived and hooked up to the electricity and opened the wine, a Macon Village this time, probably colder than recommended but we prefer it like that in this ...

Back onto the bus for 1.5 hours to Bourges, a little village with buildings dating back to 1400. This was one of the few areas in France with structures this old because it was not bombed during the war.

We may have to cough up for a new tyre, although we can't understand how it happened, given Vik drove very gingerly through Bourges all weekend.
I think I shall start a new blog for Millau...
