Il y a du choix.
Tom Wilson: Certainement!
Taking advantage of the situation...
Tom Wilson: The only thing to do, Larry!

Not something you hear everyday, Tom...smileI see you filled in ok though.
Tom Wilson: And eventually made it back - the British Embassy laid on buses from Madrid to Calais - not a trip I'd like to do again!
Good time to get wonder around with your camera... I like this street market scene
Tom Wilson: It gave me a few more days of sightseeing than I would have had - I wasn't on holiday, just attending a meeting!

I have never seen such a wonderful array of fish, Tom
Tom Wilson: The continental fish markets really are something else, Lisl - the biggest I've seen is Valencia, where the layouts on the stalls are works of art!
I remember that year, Tom. I was supposed to fly to America, I think, and got waylaid for a couple of days.
Tom Wilson: Mother Nature was fighting back!

I have noted how different the produce is from that in an English market Tom.
Tom Wilson: Much more choice for starters!

Trapped in a fish market by a volcano. Life can be very strange at times Tom..
Tom Wilson: Very!
Looking at fish to pass the time
Tom Wilson: And cathedrals and galleries...

Wouldn't know what to choose, as I can make great dishes from everything on display. I would probably go for those big prawns just below the langoustines. Big mouth I have - since the prices would probably be a killer for me with my meagre ZAR currency.
Tom Wilson: They wouldn't be cheap, that's for sure, Louis!
A fie mix of what appears to be fish and meat.
Tom Wilson: No, this is entirely fish and shellfish, Brian - quite an assortment!
you are at the stall I would head for for dinner.
Tom Wilson: I'd be happy to shop there, too, Mary!
