I`ve been in Trois-rivière for just over a week at the poetry festival. I am amongst francophone poets with my very bad French but everyone is forbearing. They tell me they love my accent, which I find hard to believe. Truly, an Australian accent is attractive? I don`t think so. But it is a great festival.
It's quite hot here, unseasonably, I'm told. So much for all the layers of clothes that are taking up room in my suitcase.
