Its been pouring with rain all day which is why I've been able to finally update this blog, we're in a car park that has a little station where we can hook up and get electricity (woohoo!), a toilet (which is really horrible, has a hole in the wall and no seat, had to pee whilst lots of builders could see my very white bum...oh well starting not to care, thank you raves) and water. The Cognac chateau is opposite us across the river, and the Hennessy factory is next door to it. We went in to be told there are no English spoken tours today but they would phone us and tell us what time we could come tomorrow...no phone call yet! Hmm. Anyway, went into the shop and saw bottles of Extra Old Hennessy for 980 euros..and a gigantic gold studded bottle that came with its own suitcase...no price on that one but I guess it would be about 10,000 euros or something! Anyway, this might be the last time I can update for a while, we're hoping to get to Messanges near the Spanish border in a couple of days.
