Great game, tickman! Five golden stars.
I have my dad in this region, La Londe, close to Le Lavandou. I've been at the Cavaliere beach lots of times, it's beautiful.
My uncle was a US parachute soldier and was dropped behind the front in France in 1944. He was also among the first men who entered Dachau. Does he want to talk about it? No way. And no wonder, I guess. By the way, he lied about his age, he said he was 18. He was just a boy of 16... (Change the spelling of Saint Tropez).
