My town, Vannes, and a worthy cause!!!

I cannot keep away for long from our capital city of Vannes of the beautiful Morbihan dept 56 in my lovely Bretagne , and in my belle France. I have many posts on the city, and we love to come here every week, The city still is a bit off the beaten path of many but you should see its gorgeous architecture and an interesting history, However, this visit was special, read on,,,,

Not to mix the politics with the travel but me think is a must, What is going in Ukraine is genocide but the world today is soft on values and continues to make the same mistakes as in the past at least since 1938.  I heard of a Czech owned resto in Vannes that was making sandwiches to raise funds for the people there, So we went for it of course, and took some sights of the city again,

The Le Thika restaurant is at 11 bis Rue Thomas de Closmadeuc in old town, right off Rue Thiers and across from the Hôtel de Ville, It is Czech-French couple and they do nice sandwiches indeed, We purchase the chicken base meli melo poulet that was offered as the donation base for Ukraine, We , also got vanilla and caramel milkshake all for 14,30 euros per person. Delicious and worthy.

We walked of course before parked by the back of the Tour Connétable off the ramparts in the old town.

We drove past the Cinema Garenne across from the château de l’Hermine and saw the Porte Tour Trompette !

We walked to take a peek again of the Place des Lices and its wooden houses.

And we passed by to see again the Hôtel de Ville or city hall and a peek af the totally renovated Chapelle Saint Yves (see post) off the Collége Jules Simon (middle school) right across from the city hall.

We stop for some shopping at Carrefour Vannes and buy supplies for Ukraine. This we drop them off at our town city hall or mairie of Pluvigner. This is across from our market area , the Place Saint Michel.  And the day was done with nice sights, easy ride, and the feeling good of doing something , the minimum for a good cause.

There you go folks, a nice ride, pleasant in my neck of the woods, and for a good cause me think, Pluvigner and Vannes are close to heart and worth the detour me think, And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all !!!
