Got woken up by… a bomb! Louder than a sonic boom, but not that much. It was a small charged place on the doorstep of a government office. A bit like the FLQ’s exploding mailboxes, without the lost mail and risks of collateral damage. No reaction from the locals.
Tomorrow would have been Isabelle’s birthday. 40. I stop a long while in a tiny high-perched chapel. Can’t help thinking that this could have been our honeymoon. When I got out, the sun was not as bright (yippy!), the light had changed.
Went to Guy Savelli’s little museum. Very nice guy (no punt intended). Guitarplayer, breadmaker, antiques collector. He was surprised to see his museum mentioned in an English travel guide (Lonely Planet). This man who was elected most beautiful baby in 1941 (the certificate, hung on a wall in his museum, has the only remaining picture of him as an infant) told me to go see the Trésors de Curbara (“Tell the charming young lady, Christelle, that I sent you.”: quite interesting.
I could have stay a lot more time in this village, but I still had 5 km to walk back. There are, Christelle tells me, a lot of villages and hamlets around well worth seeing.
