Walking the Dog
We've now arrived in Vichy. It's been a good journey, mostly on small roads, the way we used to do France. Once we'd settled in to our hotel we went out to have a walk around. If you look up it's a beautiful city but you daren't, you'll fall over and probably be run over by a car. They seem to have pulled up every pavement in the place and they're relaying some of them. It's a complete mess. There are some very posh shops here and as we walked through the Parc des Sources we heard some drumming so walked
We arrived down at the park by the River Allier as the sun was setting. There were plenty of people about but as it got darker we headed back to the town in search of somewhere to eat. We'd had quite large meal at lunch so we were pleased to find an unassuming little Italian place where we shared a pizza and a pichet of rouge and followed it with a mousse au chocolat. Just the job!
