Me, my friend and hubby went for the day to Akaroa a village in the banks peninsula, 75 km from Chch, to the French fest. Le jour est tres beau: sunshine, good food, good company, a parade, a market and a walk. What else do you want? No don't answer that.With the boat Comte de Paris 63 French emigrants arrived in Akaroa in 1840. They thought to make the island in a French colony but the English had already taken over, so they didn't go further than Akaroa. The settlement of Akaroa is still very French today and we had a taste of France with French music and the market people said
ca vas. Ca vas tres bien merci we answered.
oh lala of course there is wine and french berets
Another amazing view
