arranged for a taxi for transport for tomorrow. asked to make sure they will take a credit card--don't have enough Euros.

... away, called for navette. Got checked in at hotel. Went to pool. Hot, but dark clouds in the sky.
Walked to commercial center to have dinner--only a couple places open. I had shrimp curry & Hunter had pho. We both drank iced green tea. We thought about seeing "Maleficent" at the movies, but it only plays at 11:15 am each day. Bummer.

It's different here away from the high mountains......but stunningly beautiful........and hilly if you ride a bike!
And my old family friend Aunty Barbara delivers 2nd to none hospitality!!
... a guided cycling tour around the reservoir for free - it was very enjoyable with a bit of rolling hills, for a half hour ride on Giant mountain bikes, so quite a good ride!

We all drank a bit before and during dinner, so by the end of the long conversation, as interestig as it was, we were all very tired. We had lemon tart and some French upside down cake for dessert, then went back to the chateau. We watched an episode of sex and the city and went to bed. I love you, ...
