Living France - - What's New -

Back in 1971 I was a 20-year-old trav­el­ling around Europe. I met some­one in Italy and we de­cided to hitch-hike to Nice, where we stayed at a hos­tel. We knew about the fes­ti­val, and one day an­other hosteller came back and said John Len­non and Yoko Ono were leav­ing the next day from Nice airport; that he’d shown a film at Cannes. We hitch-hiked to the airport, and yes, we saw and met Len­non and Ono. For a 20-year-old Bea­tle fan, it was be­yond fab.
