Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Crowded little town
This weekend, the town where I live is hosting a regatta. It used to be a prestigious event, now it is an excuse for drinking and to hold a fayre. It also means that the town gets very crowded, with plenty of people coming in for the weekend, dressed nicely, but mainly here for the booze. Yesterday evening I could tell it was that time of the year: there were tickets attendants at the train station, even though there is hardly a train station to talk of. The place was also swarming with police officers. The overpacked streets is already strange enough, but the police presence adds to the surreal feel.
