Just 4 days left, Charles!! Is it a truncated pilgrimage this year?

I had to scroll down quite a bit, but I was sure you wouldn't disappoint on the gastronomie front! Meals out in France are always a delight.

I have yet to see Two Tailed Pasha so I am most envious at your seemingly regular audiences with this leviathan of the European butterfly range.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Must say there look to be some good deals on the food front round those parts, Charles.

Well done with the Pashas. One day I'll get to see them!

i am reliably informed that the Truckstop at Rouffiac offers tremendous value at lunchtime; the 14 euro menu includes a whole bottle of local wine !

Only in France could a truckstop serve cheap wine! :(
