This picture says it all. The French just take extra care with things. I’ve seen the painstaking preparation and presentation that can go into even the simplest of dishes served in a restaurant and the way that no roundabout can be left undecorated, but I really wasn’t prepared for this. Is there anything in the world more mundane than a drain pipe? Normally, no. This time, plenty.
If you’re curious, this drain pipe hangs from an equally ornate restaurant in St Jean de Sixt.
