    A FRENCH AFFAIR! View On Black

    During our visit to the Continent, we drove through part of Northern France, we made a stop in St Omer, often the first stop inland for many visitors to France, a quiet, unassuming and attractive little town, 43km southeast of Calais.
    We wanted to stretch our legs. Walked through the lovely shopping-streets with some beautiful old houses and got to the market square.
    On the corner, we saw the most attractive fruit and veg shop, everything looking very fresh.
    I saw plaits of fresh garlic... I chose one, walked inside to pay for it when I saw the cheese-counter, full of spécialitées de la région...
    I bought some of that too...
    Although the garlic was wrapped in TWO bags, as was the cheese, and in the boot we had a zipped up 'cooling-bag' in which we stored our purchases...
    From then on, each time we got into our car, we were greeted and treated by the pungent mixture of the combined 'fragrances!!!
    What a laugh!

    The cheese was delicious, the garlic... ahem, beautiful? ( the guys in the studio weren't so impressed!)

    thanx for your time and comments, greatly appreciated, M, (*_*)
