A long slow trip back up the Canal Garone reaching the fabulous 4 locks and bridge passing over the river and several roads. All made a little difficult by a boatload of Germans insisting on pushing in behind the delightful Dutch couple behind us. Why is it that those of a Tuetonic persuasion, when travelling just keep on reinforcing the clichés. I struggled bravely not to shout at them in my mock German accent! Tonight we found a splendid local bar with a big screen to watch the All Blacks defeat France………..BUT, It was not to be. The French won, of course and the bar went beserk. Every car in Agen was driving through the streets within minutes honking horns continuously jn marvellous celebration. As we walked to the bar before the game, someone had stuck a handmade sign on a lamp post – written on it, the now prophetic observation that “TOUT E POSSIBLE’ Good on them!
