What Have They Done to Our Cafe??

Those of you who follow our story would know that we have an historical fondness (after the Kingdom of Kent) to the City of Le Mans in France. Strange really – we never planned on going there – but on Day 1 (or night 1 more accurately) of our first trip to the North African Sahara – we were hit by a drunk driver – just North of Le Mans! Long story – shortened – we were towed to a service station and mechanical repair shop attached to a bar and restaurant – which was to become our home for the next several weeks. Café du Tertre Rouge. Right on the race circuit of the 24 Hours du Mans! So – every June since – I’ve followed the race – and checked to see if the Café features. It’s an accident prone corner – so it often does! This year – as the cameras swept past it – I noticed something different – so I went to Google Maps – and dropped into street view… The mechanics repair shop (where the flag pole is now) went years ago – but this is how it was when we visited in 2006 (scroll to bottom of page.)
