... it rained nearly every day! Looking forward to dinner- We never found a spot to get lunch (we seemed to only pass houses) and our breakfast and the apple we shared are long gone! ( hungry or not, I still don't think I could take mashed fish!). Wishing I had brushed up on my French before this trip! My vocabulary is pathetically limited and my comprehension even worse. Here's some pics of day ...

Everybody had their own technique, and it was really funny watching everyone else, but only once you had got to the end yourself. We went downhill for maybe 2 and a half hours, by which time we were all thoroughly over it. We called in to see the local fromagerie, the cheese maker, whom our guide Nicole knew quite well.

... again to the Cormet de Roseland, reaching over 1900m at its highest point.
There was some kind of super car convention going on at the top, with a procession of Porsches, Ferraris and other expensive sports cars that made lots of noise and drove very fast. Fortunately, we started our descent just as the last ones arrived at the top.
We put our jackets on for the ride down, but soon realised we needed our leg warmers ...
