Invasion of the Inflatables

Aubenas is the nearest town to us & there's where we go see the doctor, do our banking, shopping etc. The town centre is perched on top of a hill & the castle can be seen as you approach. It also has a good view of the river Ardeche that meanders around. The Saturday market which sells fresh produce, clothes, chickens & knick knacks is extremely popular & every once in a while, I like to go browse but in the summer, it's crazy & I'm sure you know by now how I hate crowds so I avoid going there unless I really have to, like bringing guests.

Today I had to go to Aubenas to run some errands & imagine my surprise when the castle grounds is filled with giant inflatables - slides, trampolines, castles & even a train track. So after my errands, we went there, paid 2 euro (which was valid for the whole day). What a great deal considering the kind of prices we had to pay for rides/parks in Cannes.

So that was how we spent 2 hours of our afternoon today.

Tsu Lin - She did & I had a hard time making her leave. Some of them like the giant slide was beyond her but she enjoyed bouncing around in the castle.

Meng - Until she can hold a camera, I don't think you'll be seeing any pictures of me.
