We dined in an lovely Chinese Restaurant, Soliel de Chine,( Angoulême, nr Champniers) we have been a few times before, they have made some changes since we last went, great improvement. They have a great WOK area, you just pick the meat or fish you want, and they WOK it while you wait...looked really good.
After lunch we decided to venture out to the sales, not clothes sales :-( but electrical goods... some amazing kitchen gadgetry..in some lovely colours. The cookers were out of this world, looks and price wise, but I do believe you get what you pay for. We didn't make any purchases , but have been given some great ideas.
Another superb shop we went into was Cultura just outside Angoulême, nr Champniers. A little treasure trove, has absolutely everything CRAFT.. Arts, paints, ribbons, threads, Tapestries, cake making, Books, DVD's CD's....excellent place.
Here are a some photos, so you can appreciate the dilemma I had not to go mad and buy..buy..buy...
