... the guys, a procession of Tour de France related vehicles passed through on their way from Ax Trois Domaines to Saint Girons, the start of tomorrows stage. Plus dozens of motorhomes. Funnily the majority of motorhome drivers seem to travel naked, well from the waist up. David has been informed but I'm not sure if he plans to adopt this practice. We dined on traditional fare at one of the open air restaurants in the market place. Lovely ...
