Town or Country person?
I have recently been entertained by watching locals dance at a Fest Noz, weird dancing but the music was ok. It was held in a brightly lit Sports hall, I watched perched on a hard wooden pew!
Last weekend I scoffed moules and frites at a nearby Fete de la Musique, we all turned out to watch two bands play,yes only two! oh and some elderly folks dance Breton style.
This weekend it is the local Kermess, where we will watch a bunch of young children dance around in costume at the local football pitch. And eat a plate of frites with something, unless of course you dont eat meat.
The next Fete de la something is for flowers. Also at a village over yonder a pre Bastille day celebration will be held, we can enjoy fireworks, watch sizzling sausages smoke, and munch through another plate of frites.
So if this all sounds a bit dull perhaps the reality of rural life might be a shock.
Spot the local character?
Yes the man on the left is Joseph, he turned out with his own guitar, er no he can't play but he enjoys life in his own world, and I hope you are too.
The French word to perch is se percher
The French word for pew is banc.
