The complex has ben really busy over the last few weeks. Guests are coming and going and we have had a great mix of nationalities – Dutch, Italian, the ocassional Brit and, of course, the Germans.
One day recently Jean and I headed to the pool for an afternoon of swimming and relaxing to find that, when we got there, every lounger was either being used or was empty but with a towel drapped over it – clearly the European sign for “reserved”.
It reminded me of a UK TV commercial that aired in the early 1990’s about this very subject. Enjoy.
Its a skill the Germans practice, on the train, at the airport, supermarket, in fact anywhere!
