  1. I clicked on the beret and read “en français” in the text !
    The translation is pretty good. Thank you to him.
    I have traveled here and there through your website. Well done ! It’s nice this feeling of discovering you and your family, of tasting your humor, of finding yourself between the lines. Thank you Anne, more !
