On our walks this week, Olga and I have passed this van, a vintage Renault Trafic converted into a camper of sorts. It's got character, doesn't it? Like the French equivalent of an old VW bus.
It's also covered with jaunty, but very faded, stickers. These must be a record of the places it's been -- in this case, Euro-Disney, I'm guessing?
This poor guy is crawling and swinging all around the margins...
...while Marilyn, feeling blue, looks on with a sultry expression.
Don't most people talk to their pets? I certainly do.
You can just see a hint of the missing red pigments in this cluster of stickers. It's weird how the reds and yellows have vanished so thoroughly from all of them. I wouldn't have thought our weak European sun capable of such fading!
I think whoever drives this van must be just passing through, as it's not a normal fixture in our neighborhood. I hope they pick up a few new stickers while they're here.
