First I have to say that I travelled first class from
Barcelona to Toulouse. It was pretty cool, nice big leather chairs, radio and
then later they played a movie. Gemma, Hector and I got there fairly late,
between 9:30 and 10:00. Dana and her friend Theresa (who is also doing this

... for about four hours and everywhere there were throngs of people. It was really quite something.
I passed through Place St-Georges where we had dinner last night on my way back to the hotel for an afternoon nap, more packing, and getting ready for our last evening out.
By 7pm, our usual dinner time, the sky was darkening and a wind had started to blow. That, combined with a bit of burn-out from two weeks of long, drawn-out evening meals, lead us ...
