... so I could easily figure out where I was.
The only people who speak English here are Museum personnel so I’ve had to be a little bit bolder and try my hand at French. I’m starting to understand more when I read stuff but I just can’t catch on when people speak. It’s frustrating. I am very proud of myself though for going out to a sit down dinner tonight though.

It started in 1976 in the schoolyard and photos show an audience of 20 not today's 20,000! We parked up in the field where we could sleep overnight, according to one of the parking crew who also told us that ...
