Montpellier for the day

Me, Jaspa, Samina and Alicia spend the day in Montpellier - for a bit of a tour and lunch and wotnot.

Taking the tram from the Odysseum (park and ride) into Montpellier - we meet a couple of clients of FHS and Benoit (the boss) at Cafe Riche on the Comedie for a coffee.

Coffee turns into lunch at Auntie Lou's English restaurant.... (huge gourmand burger with everything on it...) followed by apple and rhubarb tart and ice cream.

Then we walk down to the Perou and all around all the little shops of the Ancien Courrier - I buy some nice hand soap in l'Occitane - and then down past the Corum and into the Polygone shopping mall - Jaspa buys a new bag from Longchamps... and then I manage to find a refill for my Tiffany pen (have been looking for one since forever) at the Maison de Stylo opposite Monoprix.

Another drink at the Greyhound pub on the Comedie and home for 7pm. (we got on the tram to go home and a chap with an accordian got on.... took one look at Alicia in the pushchair (fast asleep) and said ' dodo'? and I said yes and he got off to wait for the next tram... ahh, thank you.

Pizza for dinner....
