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.
Mary Louise was having her morning coffee when I popped into the bar for our baguette.
-“ça va?” I asked.
-“ça va pas” she replied, her faced looking like thunder.
I sat on one of the high stools next to her.
-“The rabbits are laughing at me.” (I tried not to smile)
-“I have put three cages amongst the vegetables, put tasty treats in the cages and I have only caught one rabbit. The rest are still eating my beetroot, carrots and spinach. There is nothing left. Absolutely nothing. I just don’t know what to do. Perhaps Pont Vert (agricultural shop / garden centre) have some different traps or even poison”.
-“What are you going to do with the rabbit in the cage?” I asked.
-“Eat it. The rabbit eats my petit pois: I eat the rabbit.”
