The fountain-washhouse in the valley of Fongaban is under renovation. I thank the mayor and the association for saving this witness of the past badly damaged by time, for, I’ve seen this fountain gradually deteriorating since 1988 when I arrived. Its old tree, a poplar, burned and even the spring is partially dried.

I hope the work will be well done, so it becomes a stopping point for hikers and families from the town walking with their children and dogs between the gardens and the vineyards. Again, this is a nice window on the social life of our little community, as the word city seems to me disproportionate for less than 200 inhabitants live within the village.
