Fisticuffs

Last night as we waited to begin the service at DAN we heard noises of conflict in the street. Some of us looked out of the doorway to see what was happening - a group of youths getting physical - and as the situation worsened I phoned the police.

A reminder that the beautiful facade and peaceful streets of the city of Bordeaux hides the usual city reality of human misery and conflict.

Did they turn up? The last few times I phoned the Gendarmes in Guingamp was because there were cows on the loose on the estate. Great fun.
