Manifestation (and feast too)

Ron and I went down to the big protest in Cahors on Sunday against the proposed fracking of natural gas in our beautiful area of France. Fillon, the president, has momentarily canceled all contracts for the immensely damaging extraction which took some of the wind out of our sails, though I'm not complaining. I was surprised to find a good percentage of the demonstrators English!

We went early, thinking the traffic might be terrible, and discovered a fabulous small restaurant, Le Bergougnoux in the center of town where for 15 euros we had a magnificent meal: Coquilles St Jacques, noisette d'agneau and chocolate hazelnut cake with strawberries.

So we returned home with replete spirits and tummies...
