    Luckily, somehow a local chap spotted us just as we were enroute to our pitch. We always sought pitches that were private and sheltered from the high coastal winds.

    10 minutes later this gentleman drove very slowly up and he shouted this message to me from 50 metres distance:

    "Monsieur, vous ne devez pas le camp ici! Ici il ya de très nombreuses mines! Il est très très dangereux ici et que vous devez partir. Vous devez seulement repousser le long des deux voies. Vous devez quitter immédiatement! Immédiatement!"

    [Look it up on google translate]

    I had to translate to our group. We were all totally, totally stunned!
