It was not yet an official visit, the mayor had put the dishes in large to receive the Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama Wednesday afternoon. "Lourdes is a small town, but important by those it receives. You are at home here, "said the mayor, before an audience of elected officials.
Quickly, a passion has been put forward: rugby. "We have a very prestigious club," wished to recall Jean-Pierre Artiganave before presenting its guests Jean-Pierre Garruet, "the only man who has met Lourdais honorable Fijian players." He then gave them the Medal of the city, and an album featuring the history of FCL XV. Soon, fans guests rugby asked Jean-Pierre Garruet to lend a book signing session.
Just before coming to Lourdes, it was lunch at Saint-Bertrand de Comminges, where they "were very well received." Before continuing his journey, the Fijian Prime Minister signed the guestbook of the Town Hall. A visit that will be remembered.
