Le Somail up in the loft et a Perpignan avec Energie Citoyenne
So in Le Somail we spent some time up in the loft for a well earned break with the dust and the sanders and some serious protection.
Team Dust, Isabelle and J.P. et nous outside the establishment soon to be an auberge with bike hire and workshop.
We learned a new word ‘neo-rurals’, had some fine wine and bread and made new friends!
A la prochaine!
Refreshed and re-invigorated we headed of for our last port of call in France, vers Perpignan along another canal.
Of course there was boats. Here a beautiful one. There was boats and bicycles….
…. and you might spot some flamingos in the distance.
We cycled on a thin strip of land between the sea and the canal. Our first glimpse of the Mediterranean.
In Perpignan we were greeted by Oceane of Energie Citoyenne, herberged by some friendly Bretons and we went for a Halloween bike ride with a posse and at last we did a film screening in a secret location, some wasteland behind the housing estate.
Despite of what everyone had told us about Perpignan we had a really good time and thought it was a nice place with a good atmosphere and some great people.
Here is a tableaux vivant of a famous French painting. Can you name it?
And here the beautiful little community garden Energie Citoyenne made along the canal under the road.
We’re looking forward to meeting up with Energie Citoyenne again in June when we shall be cycling together to join up with the Tour Alternatiba.
