THE LAST DITCH An Englishman returned after twenty years abroad blogs about liberty in Britain

Three questions about a dancing ray

En route

Blogging will be light to non-existent as I am off to France for a week. I drive from London to Dijon today and then on to the Cote d'Azur tomorrow. I am attending the MIPIM property event in Cannes (as I have every year since 1991). It will not all be business though. I am looking forward to catching up with lots of friends - many of whom are former clients and colleagues. 

Of course there is also the pleasure of about twenty-four hours in the company of Speranza to look forward to on the autoroutes there and back. I do love to be on the road!

Good luck with the drive and enjoy France. So so envious!


I hope she gives as much pleasure to onlookers as she does to me. She's a joy to drive. 6.5 hours flew by today (at least once I got off the congested English roads). She sang her way lustily through France and I felt like a very lucky man.

She's safely ensconced in the proprietor's garage at my hotel in Dijon. After freak hailstorms and driving rain in Burgundy, I am hoping for convertible weather further South tomorrow. I have packed very carefully so that I have the option to put the roof down if the weather obliges.

Travel safely, Tom. I'll bet Sperenza will be turning heads all through the trip.
