Guess What, IKEA has come to town...
I can't believe I did this. I spent the Saturday before school starts at the brand new IKEA in Le Pontet (just North of Avignon, and right close to the kids' school).
Normally, I would be the last person caught with the entire population of the Vaucluse, the Drome, Arles, and more at this, the busiest IKEA in all of Europe, on its first ever Saturday. Ouch!
Well, we took it slow. My girlfriend is building her house and needed shelves, curtain material, etc., so it sort of made sense, but... We could have been in Times Square, or perhaps the McDonalds in Tokyo?
The least I could do was purchase a bit of salmon and pickled herring.
