... centres supplied us with food. We were able to get some more suction (ventouse) hooks from Gifi.
Then we had a long drive, mostly on Autoroute, to an aire at Salles sur L'Hers. We have used it before, but it is fine although quite sloping. The commune provide electricity, although only one socket was working. So we piggy backed onto a frenchman's lead.

What a sham. So many people believing in the legend of this place. All here for hope, to pray and cure. Wouldn't want to burst their bubble but? Words fail ...
