Hi Paolo,

Those rond-point references bring back so many great memories. How many times can we go around one while we finally agree on the road sign that best suits this route plan we#re struggling with? As to your wife having #frozen hair# my wife (the navigator) is busy trying to grow her#s again. A driver who doesn#t follow simple instructions or who insists trying streets #that must be one way# had her pulling hair out in frustration. Ahh! but what adventure.

Your description of driving in Ile-de-France has resonance with us. Trying to find the correct lane to drop a car off at Orly had us doing circuits for repeat performances until at last a taxi driver came to our rescue with a #follow me#. No wonder we#ve become Francophiles.

Regards, James
