Fest-noz at Trévignon
A Fest-noz is a kind of Breton Noson Lawen. This one was held at a beautoful place called Trévignon and it began with food and a male voice choir singing sea-shanties. The food was chipolata or merguez and chips or tuna or sardines and ratatouille. It was David's first encounter with French chipolatas (they're very good) and my first encounter with a big slab of grilled tuna (also very good).
The man grilling the tuna was very friendly, especially when he heard that we're Welsh. Generally the folk of this area like meeting the Welsh and I ended up chatting with lots of folk. One guy told me that the British who came and settled in this area in the 6th century came from Wales. Ah bon.
