Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Twenty years ago, a certain person not unclosely related to the present writer paid 25% of the agreed price for a decaying farmhouse in the Lyon region, in cash. It took us the person a few months to accumulate enough banknotes, taking out the weekly limit from money machines.

The notary tried to trap the two parties into declaring the full price, but was unable to drive a wedge between them.
