Seen on my way to work, part 3

Proof that Frenchmen really do wear berets: ;)I'm pretty sure I've blogged about this chair before, a few years back:
One of my favorite things about driving down here is driving through villages that look like old postcards:
Or like the façade of a movie set:
And then we have good ol' town of Condom, right near Valence sur Baise (this one's for you, Walt). How many people can say they've eaten lunch at a truck stop there??

You went to Condom? I'm so jealous! When I lived in Grenoble, my American roommates and I had a huge map of France in the hallway. We used to stand around and point out places we wanted to visit. We became fairly obsessed with Condom, but unfortunately it never made it into our travel itinerary. Do they sell postcards there??? :)

LOL, glad I'm not the only one who finds it funny!

I remember hearing a few years back about how all of these English hooligans kept going there and stealing the entrance sign to the town. Each sign cost something like a thousand euros, so they ended up having to put wooden signs up because they were so much cheaper. (Though I did see a metal one when I was there).

I wonder if French people wonder why English people eat food filled with préservatifs? ;)
