Where I stayed
First stop for the day was in a small commune called Vezelay. This small hilltop town has a great little main street, with an Abby at the top, all of which has been given UNESCO World Heritage Site status
Back at the car, we found that the aerial on the car had been stolen...and whilst we had our theories as to who it was, we had no proof.
Next we had a brief (quite literally) stop in Saulieu, where our challenge was buy the biggest pair of womens knickerswe could find...but instead we went for a quite tasteful frilly g-string...which unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of!
Final stop of the day before arriving at our destination, was in a small town, where we had to buy the cheapest bottle of wine we could find, and we'd get one point for every Euro that it cost below 5 Euros. We did a pretty good job, finding 1L bottle for 1.25 Euros (roughly NZ$2.50!).
Again it was dark as we arrived in Macon, and after finding our way to the hotel and dumping out stuff in our rooms, we headed off to the bar where everyone was meeting. This was the Bridge Cafe on the waterfront. This was a great night, with lots of good quality socialising and drinking, and a bit of mingling with the locals...in conversations consisting of very bad French and English...but still it was a lot of fun, even though I hadn't spoken French since 3rd form at school - 10 years ago! I'd really like to try and pick up a bit more French now.
