Black Sunday. The majority of France goes on holiday the same day and travels to the mountains. We did too. This was easily the *worst* traffic we have ever experienced. We completely stopped the car half-a-dozen times waiting for over heated cars to get pushed off to the side.
Eventually we arrived at Solneige where Mirjam greeted us with "Brian and Amy Zimmer from Chicago, would you like to join us for dinner?" Did we ever!
