THIS DEAR LADY WAS SOO VERY SWEET AND GAVE ME APPLES AND CANDY BARS AND BANANA AND … HELPED UNLOAD A COUPLE OF WATER CONTAINERS WHILE SHE MADE CAFE FOR ME! 

ARRIVED IN FOUCHERANS AFTER DARK .. NO PLACE TO SLEEP .. FOUND A HEATED UTILITY ROOM AT THE CHURCH .. CALLED THE GITE THAT WE CALLED IN THE AM AND WERE TOLD NO ROOM FOR PILGRIM. THE MAN SPOKE FRENCH ONLY + “NOT POSSIBLE” FOUND PUBLIC BUILDING SIMILAR TO BUS STOP. Open and getting cold and rain on the way. SAW A MAN AND FRENCH / ENGLISH CONVERSATION HE LED ME TO THE HOME OF THE OWNER OF THE GITE. LONG ”CONVERSTION” RESULTING IN HIM LEADING ME TO THE GITE AND MOSTIONING IF I WOULD SLEEP BEHIND THE COUNTER IN THE FOYER. OF COURSE. GAVE ME A LIGHT AND THREE WOOL BLANKETS. I THINK HE ASKED IF I HAD EATTEN. I MADE MY BED AND SLEPT. ATLEAST 15 PEOPLE CAME IN AND WENT ON TO ROOMS WITHOUT NOTICING ME BEHIND THE COUNTER. EVENTUALLY I MADE A SOUND AND ONE MAN PASSING BY ENGAGED ME AND SAID “YOU SPEAK ENGLISH” HE SAID THREE MORE PEOPLE WERE COMING IN DURING THE NIGHT. DO NOT BE ALARMED. THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THE STORY … LATER ALIGATOR!
