'Low budget bus trips in France' by K.J.S.Chatrath

                                                       Le Havre- the largest port in France

Those who do not mind a bit of roughing it out- travelling by bus by night and being lodged in very simple hotels, may like to see the following websites for low budget trips in France.;

I have travelled with this company many times since 1982 and found the trips to be excellent value for money. Your co-passengers on the trips may be ordinary Frenchmen and women, students and tourists from around the world.

But please do satisfy yourself about various aspects of the trips before booking your seats. I take no responsibility whatsoever.

"See 'Buffle' at Alliance francaise de Chandigarh" by K.J.S.Chatrath

The Alliance française de Chandigarh presents

An original show between cabaret, singing and theatre
By Xavier Machault, Roberto Negro & Pierre Dodet

On 30th January at 6:30 p.m.
CaféTHEATRE, Alliance française
In French & English with English subtitles

The brand new show by BUFFLE !
With the singer/author Xavier Machault, the pianist/composer Roberto Negro and the actor/author

The three singers, musicians, storytellers, play with words and poetry and follow their way, between songs and play, from the piano to the electric guitar, from monologue to polyphony.

Le Petit Bulletin (French cultural magazine) : 
« Between very serious compositions and absurd versions, the three musicians work to entertain the public with their humor and interpretations. It's their way to do it, that gives all the interest to this theatre-concert. Roberto Negro is a fantastic pianist, Pierre Dodet an incredible actor and Xavier Machault a sensitive singer well known of the French scene. "Don't worry, be happy", says the song, and it's so good ! 

Telerama (French cultural magazine) : 
BUFFLE !’s show is a very special theatre experiment, fresh and surprising
