Sharing Elderberry Wine in Truffle
An Albanian friend has lent Tom Purdue a donkey, and he is following an old neolithic pathway to the coast. Essentially it is a dirt-track but it is associated with the Parsifal legend. Leaving the delights of Giverny, Tom travels to the twin villages of Duffle and Truffle, to meet the venerable Rabbi Oud Ramonides who is taking the waters. The two men sit in a bar sipping sweet elderberry wine, and discussing the difficulties of looking after donkeys in the modern age. Oud has a cousin in Spain who works for a donkey sanctuary, but she has profound spiritual problem.
