....in the centre of rural France, unexceptional but typical.
The church square. I believe the Tour de France went through here some years ago, when it was rapidly spruced up for the occasion. A little like the sudden face-lifts when the queen comes to visit?
Down beside the church is the secondary school for ages 11-16, in a lovely building with this spiral staircase in a tower.
More or less across the road from the school is this wonderful house.
And down a side road is another house with a tower. Towers must be part of the local tradition. I want one!
Along the road to the market.
The markets in rural France are struggling a little - competition from the supermarkets.
A stall devoted to garlic and onions. What would anyone do with a sack of garlic? I love garlic, but that seems excessive ;)
