The capacious Smart car

I’m loving my new little car. I have become a complete convert to automatics and enjoy its easy maneouvrability. I enjoy parking in tiny spaces (not as tiny as I had hoped, given the huge, heavy doors), and I take great pleasure in driving along with the roof open.

One compromise I thought I was making was a drastic reduction in what I can carry.  Until I came across this red twin outside La Main Verte – the annual May Day plant and flower market in the Le Vigan. The couple were busy putting three fair-sized trees into the boot!

So maybe this is the answer, if ever I can take up my cello again, I shall simply have to drive around town with the cello case sticking out of the roof – and hope it does not rain.
