What a surprise to run into this carnaval, people dress in middle age costume walking around inside the alley of Vannes, that was full of old half timbered houses, was it thousand of 1 night.....!!!

Vannes was an important trading port in medieval time for merchandise from the east, perhaps that reflected part of the street scene of restaurant in mixed cusine like Afghan, Indian, Japan.... of course...together with the Irish celtic favour, you got quite an international feel in this beautiful town down the southern coast of Brittany.
