goes East - 4
Gordon provides his fourth
report as he leaft Bourges on his way through France en route for
Greece and then places East (4.5.05)
The weather in
France has been sunshine alternating with violent thunderstorms
- in fact more rain than sun. On all recent trips French petrol
cost 12 - 20p per litre less than the UK price but on this trip
normal 95 octane unleaded now costs equivalent to 84p/litre so very
little difference to the UK.
Gordon had a footnote expressing concern with the keyboards he will
face in sending routine reports back as he travels East. Gordon
commented "if the French keyboards are so different, I dread
Gordon Hesketh-Jones (Harvest Gold 1904).
a cyrilic keyboard will look like and how I will cope.........!"
