Chatter – he says
After breakfast, we headed into town for real sightseeing. Every corner and turn in the old town is worthy of a photo. We took plenty of these. Our initial cellphone simcard prepaid had run out, and try as we might we could not find a lebara prepaid top-up shop. Not to worry, we can do it on the internet we thought. Ha ha.!
We visited a pharmacia and over the counter managed to buy Sudafed and Panadol for the princely sum of 3euros. This we found amazing – not only over the counter Sudafed which is now banned in NZ because of the P trade, but also the level of subsidy. We should have stocked up big time.
That evening we went out for a restaurant meal. Most of the menu was fish, so I went for a steak. Not a good choice, though the meat was marginally better than the previous experience. Took a liking to the beers though. Went home where Jenny spent some time on the internet and found accommodation for us in La Thuille a village just outside Chamonix. She booked 2 nights in case the weather at Chamonix was not good, or I was not up to a visit to Mont Blanc.
Chatter – she will say
