Delphine, you are the first Frenchwoman Iíve ever met that enjoys an English sense of humour; Iíve not sure if that is cause for celebration, or commiseration.
In order to maintain the joke we did consider a 10m high statue of Wellington in place of ďThe MeetingĒ, but decided that the fact that we now have a much more attractive terminus than those on the other end is sufficient. We also thought that charging our French visitors £10 a glass for their own fizzy water in the Champagne Bar a bit of a hoot; unfortunately this has backfired, as most of itís patrons seem to be English.
