The temperature has dropped below zero overnight and we experienced our first snow, at the feast of St Siffrein in Carpentras. The event lasts three days and has well over five hundred stalls, plus a funfair. More snow on Sunday in the village of St Simiane le Rotonde, north-east of Apt. There seem to be saints for everything, in this case, it seems, obesity. Speaking of saints, there is a restaurant near Goult called the Auberge du Fiacre. We’re reluctant to dine there because St Fiacre is the patron saint of haemorrhoids.
