Cold and bright. Down to the cafe under the arcades for the morning croissants, a cup of coffee and a chance to read the daily papers. Another EU summit. Another chance for the French press to berate ' Les Anglais ' . The term Anglo-Saxon , the greatest insult in the French language, liberally bandied around. This time the argument is about money. '' Dishonest and undignified " the caption under a picture of the British Prime Minister.
Facing me on the church doorway an old medieval carving. Half dog, half fish or is it half rabbit, half fish ? Probably passed it a hundred times before without noticing it. Just goes to show - Look hard enough and there's always something to make you smile.
