Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
I don’t recall seeing many overhead electricity or phone lines in England, but having said that I do head straight for a pretty large town just outside of London. Maybe rural England is different.
Rural Brittany is very different!, there are overhead cables for everything!!.. and what a maintenance nightmare. Each year an especially designed tractor with huge loppers patrol the small country lanes chopping down any branches that are getting to close the to cables.
Thursday morning I followed a tractor ‘doing the rounds’ in Reminiac, and I wondered, ‘Those loppers are huge, they must sometimes get the cables by mistake….’
Be careful what you wish for! We have been without a phone line for 4 days !!…..at last, we are now back on line…
