Bonus Post- Le Tour de France , traversée de la Manche!

As the major logistical nightmare of getting a bunch of cyclists and their entourage across the channel kicks off, I thought I would share something from  my treasured photo collection .

This shows Le tour de France flying through the outskirts of our village, Campagne-sur-Aude, in July 2007  en route to the Pyrenees.Just amazingDSC00223.

On  an educational note-

“Le tour” means just that- a tour as in “around”someplace

“La Tour” means  the tower..

another little linguistic subtlety.
