Lionnel and Regine
Lets talk adventure. Actually Didier said that, but he just was not there, so I have to come back one day to see him and Anne.
I come to see Lionnel, Regine, Arsene et Violette. They are currently based in Japan, just over in France for a few days only. This is a slot in time I did not want to miss before departing to the complete wilderness for good.
So after driving nearly 800 km from The Hague the night before my French this Saturday morning is a bit rusty.
But then all of a sudden my tongue actually speaks what the brain wants to tell.
At Gee Gee's
But before we settle to talk adventure we eat at Gee Gee's with Mo Mo, Isabelle, Luis and of course Lionnel and Regine. If I may flick through of what we have?
All is delicious: 3 kinds of paté on toast followed by a roast of lamb and fries, then cheese (fromage du lait crù) and choclate cake (gâteau au chocolat com desert).
And we drink a lot, Champagne then red wine (Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Côte du Rhone) and finish Calvados and coffee and more Calvados. After all we are in Calvados Country.
In the end we destroyed ourselves with sake Lionnel has brought over from Japan.
Lionnel, a master of his digital device, sent these pics.
The adventure talk
Sunday evening Lionnel introduces me to Valèrie and Benoit and we talk adventure, They have been to India with their truck and back. And they have been to Africa many times and most important plan a trip to Senegal scheduled for this December via Algeria.
I listen in disbelieve and for the first time I feel it is doable, has been done before and that I CAN do it as well: LIVE MY DREAM.
Monday morning at 6.p.m. I take the ferry to Portsmouth, England, get a new phone card and make my way to London driving on the "right" side of the road as the English say.
