Like Hannibal and his elephants we took it upon ourselves to traverse the mighty Alps in our trusty Citroen. Driving over the Col du Glandon on our way to the village of Le Bourg D'Oisains we arrived just as the weekly markets were about to open.

A tasty breakfast of brioche and grande cafe at the local boulangerie and we were set for shopping and cycling. A visit to the local cycle shop to enquire about climbing the Alpe was in order as conditions were terrible, pouring rain ...

After that it eased a bit ...

... feeling great so we don't have much to report from here, we decided to leave after 3 nights as the weather was pretty bad and there was nothing in the forecast to say it was going to improve in the near future....

That is all, we did walk into the local village during a break in the rain so see the few pictures we took...
