Postcard Challenge Week 5

Today is week 5 of Darcy's Postcard Challenge, and our destination this week is France. Here is the continuation of the story:

Auntie Cissie had to rest and eat for 5 days to recover her strength after learning about Jason’s arrest, although she was happy that they let him go after 2 hours. She made him promise never to go to China again. Jason had the *Made in Taiwan* stamps on his vases painted over and replaced with some Chinese signs by a friend of his, who knows some Chinese letters as he does tattoos.

This week Cissie is with Thelma on a bus tour of France. They were able to start eating on the boat to keep up their strength, and were delighted with all the food and restaurants in France. Cissie has dug out some remnants of French learned long ago at school, and impresses her friends with her *Bong jewer Mon-sewer* when they arrive at their hotel in Paris. She still confuses some words and phrases, and astonishes the waiters by asking for *Caffay oh late, par avion*. But to make up for it, she writes *S’il vous plate* on the post cards to make sure they go by air-mail....In case you can't read Auntie Cissie's writing, here is the text:
*Dear Jason, Thelma and I are having a wonderful week in France. So much beauty to see! We had boullabaisse in Marseilles, Escargots in Albi - which they served in such cute snail shells, what an idea!! and plenty of coffee and cakes. There are cafés and patisseries on every corner. The Eiffel Tower is not bad, but there was no revolving restaurant! I have bought you a T-shirt just like mine; you will love it! Love, Auntie Cissie xx




Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
