It was fairly busy in Montpellier yesterday. There's a big Christmas market on Place de La Comédie with lots of different stalls. It was pretty cold so we treated ourselves to some hot churros. Savannah was over the moon because she found 1.20 EUR on the floor and put it in her new little handbag. We walked on a bit. Within half an hour she'd spent up, she gave all of it to a freezing middle-aged woman sat on the floor with a sign saying "I'm ashamed but I'm hungry".
I'm sure you remember these images from last year. We all passed them on around blogland, didn't we? I had a look at the same Stadmission's web shop this morning. 100 SEK will buy someone a bag of groceries, 200 SEK will buy lunch for 10 people, 500 SEK will buy petrol for the mission to carry out its night rounds.
Times are hard, all over the planet.
Christmas is all about giving, isn't it?
