Do you know the way?

This is a directional sign at the main intersection in Faverolles-sur-Cher. The largest nearby town is Montrichard, just a few kilometers away. Beneath that is the sign that points to the mairie (town hall). The other places are just little hamlets here and there (mostly there).

A typical directional sign in small French towns.

There are also indications for une aire de pique-nique (a picnic area) and two (count 'em!) parking areas.

  3. It's strange. That sign doesn't show Montrichard a few miles away, but shows la Bigotterie, thousands of miles away across the North Atlantic. Strange!

  4. I hope the weather was better for your bonfire than it was here in Derbyshire. What do your French neighbours think of Guy Fawkes night - have they heard of it?

    I realize that I didn't know the term, une aire de pique-nique... thanks!

  6. leon, I worked there for about five years back in the '90s. Seems another lifetime ago.

    melinda, I wondered if anyone would pick up on that. Bigot is a big family name around these parts.

    chm, comme c'est bizarre...

    jean, I hadn't even heard of it. I don't know that the French people know. There were a couple of French people there, one is married to an English woman, so he probably knew. The weather was great.

    judy, glad to be of service!
