The market quiet. Very quiet. One of the cheese ladies tells me that people aren't spending as much because of ' la crise ' . " VAT goes up again next year " added by way of explanation. The cheese lady stresses the word ' again ' . Angus can't help but wonder what it will be like if the French government ever actually tries to trim its spending ? The cheese lady's husband offers me some canned guinea fowl. ' It's very good '.
Sunday morning early. Very early. The village makes a little money by letting out the Salle de Fetes to various clubs and associations. Today the Salle de Fetes has been hired by a group of tomtom and bongo drum players. They arrive before first light and promptly start bongoing. ' The font ' gets up to see what is causing so much noise. ' Just a group of bongo players practising on the village green ' .
Another Sunday morning in deepest, deepest France profonde.
