We got on the tram for Pessac Centre so I could pick up the Citiz car.
It didn't move.
"What's he waiting for?"
Eventually, "Please evacuate the tram so we can sort out the breakdown."
We walked up to the No 4 bus stop.
"At least when the bus breaks down there's another bus along. When the tram breaks down you've had it."
We passed three police in flak jackets carrying sub-machine guns.
What that was all about we had no idea. Any dignitaries in town?
