Hélas, hélas, trois fois hélas

Fri 7 May
Jublains (Mayenne)

Jublains is a 'ville romaine' - it has a Roman bath-house under its church, and a Roman theatre on a slope on the edge of the village, with a view over the surrounding countryside.

We got there to find masses of young Romans from several local lyceums enacting episodes from their history, so we got out our picnic - as you do - and settled down to enjoy the show. We particularly liked the one where the hero returns from years of heroic travel and derring-do with dog merde on his shoe: crottino, crottinas, crottinat, crottinamus, crottinatis, crottinant.

See the Jublains photos.
