Thursday and Friday: This has been an interesting trip. The first thing was that our flight had to make a 3 hour stop in Poland. I've never been there but I've felt that Poland is one of the most interesting countries in Europe. After being humiliated by both the Germans and the Russians in the World and Cold wars they have systematically pulled themselves up by their bootstraps to become a shining example of freedom for the whole world. However, all we did there was have some great coffee in a coffee shop and sit around waiting for the plane. I must add that the actual flights LOT Polish airlines were pleasant. The pilots were awesome and the service although spare was excellent.
The next thing was a long drive to Lazac where the festival was to be held. We landed in Niece and had to drive to Montpellier and beyond to get to the festival site. Before Montpellier we stopped at a little bistro for some dinner and what a dinner it was! I had fuits du mer, salmon and whitefish plus a nice veggie pilaf, others had veal, and bouef, plus a bottle of local wine from Provence. It was finished off by an amazing cheese plate featuring a selection of local cheeses. We arrived in Larzac late at night and met up with Mark, the promoter, who greeted us with a some beer, the room keys and a warm welcome. It had been a long day so after sharing a beer we all went to our rooms and off to sleep.
