On the Road Again #15


In a final gesture of entente cordial Jean-Louis asked us to join his family for dinner and it was only a small step before we also had a bed for the night. For one tantalising moment I thought he was offering his daughter as they did in medieval days but it was tiredness playing with my mind following the long drive and anyway, because Allegra was not impressed with this idea - a non-runner from the very start.
Was it a case of ‘nearly but so far’ or had my suspect French got the wrong end of the baton?
