Reminds me of the wine festival we visited in Brno Czech Rep. Main square, huge crowds, drink taken obviously lots, marquees everywhere all road traffic stopped but, wait for it, 2 tranlines intersecting. No concessions given by the tram drivers full speed with tinkerling bells, carnage waiting to happen. Good news it didn't (while we were there)

Reminds me of a village in the south of France where I followed the Sat nav down a ridiculously steep narrow hill and ended up in a street market lined with bars and restaurants. There was no way I could turn around and the locals had to wave me through and move all their stuff and tables as I did the drive of shame.

Yep, we have done the same in a 36ft. RV towing a Citroen ZX behind. Very understanding police woman guided us through all the diners.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life“s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Ah, but did you do it twice Barry?!

We crossed a bridge in central Seville but the parking turned out to be underground parking - no alternative to driving along the narrow riverside street (single carriageway with diners having to move their tables).

We came over the same bridge again intending an alternative before the underground parking. I can't now remember what the impediment was this time but we had to run the gauntlet of the diners again.

Talk about embarrassment!!
