Bon Voyage

Over the last three days, Abingdon has not been alone. There have been representatives from St Niklaas in Belgium, Argentan and Colmar in France, Schongau in Germany, and Lucca in Italy at the twin towns conference. It is an annual event, which Abingdon hosts every five years. So 2012 will be the next one here.

Delegates can discuss matters of mutual concern. This is the mayor from Schongau with the Abingdon twinning officer.

In this picture the Mayor of Abingdon is talking to the delegate from Lucca in Italy through an interpreter.

It was also good to meet this visitor from Abingdon, Virginia.

These people have earned a twin town medal for what they have done for twinning. Tonight was the final meal when gifts were exchanged, and people said 'Bon Voyage.' The previous night they had all been to Al Zaib for a traditional English curry.

Just wondering - how traditional is a 'traditional English curry'?

I believe Chicken Tikka Masala is now the most popular fast food item ordered on a daily basis in England. So that's pretty traditional I guess...
