Pharmacies have again yielded much entertainment. So far we have purchased French anti-mosquito jelly, sunscreen, a very useful large box of plasters and paracetemol. The French seem to be fonder of pharmacies than the Brits. But then every little French village has its full complement of wee shoppies (boulangerie, charcuterie, salon de beaute – 2 of the latter, one for humans and the other for dogs.) We like France and the way the French seem to enjoy life.
It is easy enough to enjoy life on holiday…..the secret is to make the most of life wherever and whenever…..
