For this month’s City Daily Photo theme day, I wanted a typical scene in a French café in a provincial town so we went to Onzain, about 15 kilometers from Blois. It’s Sunday morning, about noon. The café also has a betting licence so people can buy lotto and lottery tickets and back horses, etc. It also sells tobacco and newspapers. We were surprised at how busy it was!

Pour ma contribution ce mois-ci à la journée thème de City Daily Photo, je voulais une scène typique d’un café français en province. Nous sommes donc allés à Onzain qui se trouve à 15 kilomètres de Blois. Nous sommes dimanche midi. Le café est un PMU et un tabac et vend également quelques journaux. Nous étions surpris de voir autant de monde. Pour voir d’autres intérieurs de café à travers le monde, cliquez ici.

    Special day, yesterday! There was le grand prix d’Amerique, supposedly the year’s main horse race. Heard all about it at my local cafe…

    Like many places now the atmosphere is so much more ‘clear’ now that smoking is forbidden.
