As if the kids hadn't had enough fun for one day, they also went to the "Disco Z" show in the afternoon. Actually we all went, and we had a ball. Disco Z was two guys in weird and funky disco gear, who entertained young and old alike, getting everybody up on the dance floor despite the lack of electrical equipment due to a blown fuse. (Well that's what happens when you run everything off one socket and leave the extension cord rolled up while in use...) They had acoustic guitars, an accordion, trombone, and tambourine which didn't require power, but the disco ball and lights would have added to the atmosphere if they had lasted more than five minutes before the fuse blew.
After the fun of the disco there were refreshments. Soft drinks and fruit juice for the children, and "vin chaud" (mulled wine) for the adults. Have you had mulled wine before? It is basically red wine heated with citrus and spices. The cinnamon and orange flavours were strongest in the vin chaud that we had yesterday and it was very nice indeed. Yes indeed...
