Week 42 2016


Great fun at the Brocante in Rauzan at the weekend.  The sun shone and there's was much to see.  I even saw some more of those strange ceramic pipes!  Did you guess?  They're old conduits for channeling electric cables through the walls of the house.  No longer in use, apparently all ceramic fittings for electricity are now illegal (that goes for light switches too).

We picked up a few items, and I got more animal knife rests. Still not sure what the beast on the right is!

The balloon festival takes off in St Emilion this weekend.  I had a great view last year, head up to the top of the village for the best views.

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.
Best wishes,
