Cheese it!

Memories of the war are apparent in much of France this week.  Among the reminders is the release of the new American film Pearl Harbor on Wednesday, June 6.   Far more than December 7 for us, June 6 is a date that lives in the French memory.  The grand meeting of veterans in Les Sables is another commemoration of that date, as was the playing of the movie The Longest Day on prime time television last night..  

The silhouette to the left is visible in storefronts all around town.  This week Les Sables also commemorates the works of the legendary author Georges Simenon, who placed several of his police novels, including some featuring the Inspector Maigret, in and around Les Sables.
