Rude and rude driver ... aggressive and reckless driving

The value of the visit has lost its luster by the lack of courtesy of the driver of the vehicle ... she drove very aggressively with a lot of careless overtaking giving rise to unsightly discussions with other motorists ... impossible to find water on the site of the Olympia with a mercury of 35c ... on the site difficult to communicate in English or French ... the people of La Presse à olive were very good I will recommend it to all however with another escort \ driver ... also we never received the free bottle of oil II was planned ...
