Annecy Youth

We are yet to see one youth in Annecy DOING THE WRONG THING. Not one. The closest I came was to observe one chap of youthful appearance ride his bike across a grassy patch that was clearly identified as a picnic area. (I mean, "HULLO00!")

At the movies the other night, no alcohol, no screeching, no shiakking. Nothing. Just good natured 'having-fun-edness'. This is an attitude that the youth of the Rural City of Wangaratta could well emulate. Especially at 'The Pubs' of a Saturday night.

Youth across France are much the same as Youth anywhere. Of course they are 'out there'. Isn't everyone who is a Youth? Of course they are Different (isn't Kip Frawley, isn't Charlie Blanch isn't Jonno Vaughan?).

Youth observed in the possession of skateboards are all intent on perfecting the trick of stomping on a corner of the skateboard, spinning the skateboard and jumping. The object is for the Youth in question to drop back down onto the skateboard and continue his journey seamlessly. THIS ALWAYS FAILS. The Youth resumes his (mostly his, not 'her') journey without acknowledging his miscalculation of the physics of skate-board spinning, only to repeat the failure some time later. I have YET to see this trick performed perfectly. I reckon Jonno could do it.

Anyhoo, that is all I have to say about the Youth of Annecy.
