Takes the biscuit really.Why, if all you had to do was lift the drop latch to close the shutters, would you hack at the latch assembly & surrounding wood with a butter knife instead? We have no idea, but at least two vandals (guests) have done this at Argeles. The original Vandals, of course, were an East-Germanic tribe marauding across Europe some centuries ago.
Guys, I am perilously close to web-camming the apartment. If it were not for the fact that most of our guests there are lovely, tidy, clean people with a brain, I would do just that.
Argeles has a sad backstory too, as far as the 20th century is concerned. You can read the Wikipedia version Wiki

I have always been drawn to sad backstories and tales of injustice, inequality and prejudice; it’s magnetic. No wonder I carry so much around in this head of mine.
