    Hi guys .. well, I safely installed in my hotel room at Versailles. Nothing very exciting, but it has a bed and en-suite which is good.

    Have eaten way too much french food, but hey .. it's only for 2 weeks.

    Only another week until I can go "home" .. poor Jon will be please (in case of confusion, I have his laptop with me, which automatically logs into here with his user name .. and I have forgotten mine!)

    Anyway, the next restaurant is calling ....catch you all soon,

    Lou x

    Tres bien, Lou. Enjoy all that great food as opportunities like that don't come along too often. Just watch out for overeating in case you're charge for 'excess baggage' on the way home.

    Hey Lou,

    If you get chance to pop into a supermarket, could you get me a Sarsons vinegar bottle please? You know, the nice curvy one you can re-fill

    One like this - Google Image Result for http://www.premierfoods.co.uk/premierfoods/fms//Brands/Sarsons/sarsons_top2.jpg

    You can ditch the vinegar, it's just the bottle I'm after.

    Ta very much in hope and anticipation.....
