These pictures of the 70s are magical! And you both look wonderful in them. :)

Celine,
Thanks. It was an amazing trip this summer 1976 tour bus...

I reached here again. And I also see you both thirty years later on your last post on the main blog. :)

Trotter said...

Celine,
So you see how young we were... ;))

indicaspecies said...

Haha, I do and I feel you both are still young. ;)

Trotter said...

OK, young, but much weightier...
You're too kind! :))

“J’avais vingt ans. Je ne laisserais jamais personne dire que c’est le plus beau age de la vie"

If not too much trouble to translate roughly, what does it mean please? :)

Trotter said...

Celine,
It's a quotation from Paul Nizan's «Aden-Arabie» (a book that must be hidden somewhere and that I can't find...)
«I was 20. I will never let anyone say that it's the most beautiful age of life»!
Have a great week!

Ah, I see. I read about Paul Nizam briefly online. Thank you. :)

Hope you find the book. I have it somewhere. Not easy to find among some thousands...
