What a character. Yvon and his partner are from Brittany in France and just prior to me meeting them had travelled across West and North Africa in a 2CV van. You can imagine the funny stories. They were half way through their 18 month travels with Nepal and Thailand still to go WOW I was so jealous. My lasting memory of him is starting a chant ("Allez Mary! Allez Mary!) to encourage my daughter to get over her shyness and wish the restaurant owner a happy Id Ul Fitr in Indonesian - in return for the lollipop she had been eyeing for about half an hour. After such unyeilding support, she uncharacteristically caved into the pressure, recited it perfectly and got her reward.
