After breakfast in Colmar we set out for the Montagne des Singes, or monkey mountain. R wanted to interact with the residents. It was only about 30mins drive, into the Vosges Mountains just to the west. There are 200 Barbary macaques all roaming free, and you get to walk around with a handful of popcorn feeding them. It actually was fun. Just don't put the popcorn in your pocket. Monkeys have sharp claws and emasculation can result, ...

... to start off our afternoon by eating Turkish. Try ordering Turkish in France with English and see what you get! It was quaint and the food was tasty. The French lived up to their name with each interaction abrupt and quite rude. There were no nice shop keepers. We decided to do the Little White Train audio tour to get a quick lay of the land. This saw us weaving through all the streets of Colmar and trying to work out which building ...
