Sunday last we picked them up at Angouleme station so decided to have a walk about before they arrived.
Did you know that this very pretty city is the centre of the bande dessinée (cartoons to you). There are cartoon related murals on the walls of some of the buildings, like these
And round a corner we found this! Didn't take much notice of it at first and it was Alex who pointed it out.
Angouleme is twinned with Bury in the UK. This was a present from Bury and British Telecom to Angouleme. It's sufficiently graffitti'ized for it to look just as much at home here as it would in Bury!
