Without undue ceremony, the mayor of Jessains opened the door of the changing room where we were to stay the night. It boasted a toilet and shower and, for €6.30, the tent could go anywhere except the pitch itself. Judging by the state of the pitch, it wouldn’t have been a comfortable night anyway!
We found one of our two tent poles broken. This we fixed, after a fashion, with two pairs of tweezers! As a mark of our blessed condition, a complete double rainbow stretched over us.
