... went to hertz as the car has had a light on for a few days. They didn't have any Anglais either! It really does amaze me how humans can understand one another without words. Attempted to get to a local park where the snow runoff lands in a wonderful waterfall but it was FREEZING!! So we went home and Nicholas practised his Boy Scout skills and made us a fire.

Up for breakfast at 8 so we can get to the cheese making demo at Fort Queyras at 10am.
Not sure why we rushed, nothing seems in a rush around here!
