Un week a Provence

Bonjour, Nous sommes back en Angleterre apres a week a Provence. Nous were tres concerned about le striking and le problems de transport. But bon news, Les Hertz providez une voiture avec le tank plein. Je recommende hotel "Mas Entremont", prez de Aix-en-Provence. Pas cheap mais tres comfortable et manger magnifique. Notre villa a Joucas etait OK, but needed encore d'illumination et heating pour les froid nuits. Aussi there was the travaux de maison - floor laying commencement a 8.15am! Nous have complained. La femme de le patron gave us a bouteille de vin Rose by way of apology (il est a crap bouteille), mais Je demande £100 from le Welcome cottages. We'll voix how that faits.

Provence etait magnifique, les temps etait bon tous les jours except on notre anniversaire (30th), quand le Mistral popped up. Nous nearly etait blown off le pont d'Avignon. Nous regardons quelque gorges, et experienced le Musee de Lavendre. Apparently only real Lavender existe sur les montagne depuis 800 et 1100 metres. Le rest is Lavendin, une clone - bad luck Norfolk.

Je recommende Provence, mais pas le villa a Joucas until les travaux est terminee. Le pictures will follow.

Helen - Non, le TGV n'est pas reliable et elle n'avez pas beaucoup de petrol

Kate - peut etre cette French n'est pas bon aussi!

My French is so buried under Catalan I am forced to respond in English, or even maybe Spanish!

Glad you got out and back without too many problems. Looks like it was wonderful, if noisy and chilly in spots. Good luck with the €100!

You have taken Fench to a new level. It could replace English as the lingua franka (franca?) under your guidance. The EU needs to set up a common language commissioner and you should be the first commissioner

It is actually Franglais. A comedian here used to to it and my favourite line was 'confiture de traffic'. However he got his reflexive verbs right too often so he didn't really speak proper franglais.
