a visit to la bourboule means not just a visit to the espace nordique but the chance to pig out on truffade or potee auvergnate, not to mention crepes. the architecture of la bourboule and mont dore is fin de siecle and now a little sad as so many buildings are boarded up and ‘a vendre’ signs are everywhere. however, there are still some lovely cosy interiors where you can while away a wet afternoon over coffee and a crepe. we particularly enjoy the ‘comptoir de cyrano’ where you eat well to a background of jazz playing.
meanwhile, i’m a tad confused by this blog which seems to have gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. it used to place my photos randomly in and amongst my text and now they are posted as huge slabs of colour between the black and white!
