This hotel seems to be mainly used by business people and large groups. The guide who dropped us said he had never collected from here before. The rooms were quite basic and musty smelling. We washed some clothes and they took 2 days to dry. The staff were wearing their coats in the restaurant - hard to tell who was staff and who were customers - no name badges either. Set on the outskirts of town next to the main lake in town. 5-10 minute walk to restaurants and shops.

... with her, which did seem strange at the time but we decided to go with it. She took us first to a restaurant to eat salad and snails, and then we went to a coffee place to have ice cream and milkshakes.

Straight to bed after for our early bus in the ...
... and he's bestowing it upon me. I sat there while the blows rained down, all in the same spot, I was waiting for Nirvana to open up before me but alas the waitress came and shooed him away. She shrugged as I did and as I sit here I feel bruising on my back from the mystic massage.
On the way back from the mystic massage I got lost and ended up on the wrong side of the river. I decided to return via the French military bridge which I swear hasn't been repaired sine ...

Then back to the hotel to meet the driver again and off to A1 Hill better known as Eliane. The walk up to the top just about killed me as it was the hottest part of the day. Tangles of barbed wire litter the slopes and the hill is honeycombed with tunnels and trenches. ...
... Bigeard who seems to have had ultimate command with his fellow para Colonel Pierre Langlais. They gave the orders and General De Castries who spent much of the time in his bunker simply signed them and passed them on to the High Command.
Never underestimate your enemy is one of the crucial tenets ignored by the French. The siege started by the paratroopers being dropped in and soon steel plates were laid down for an airstrip. The thinking was that the French ...
... politely declined as taking pills from strangers didn't seem like the wisest idea to me! I eventually made the decision to sleep on the floor in between Ollie and my chair. It was a bit of a tight squeeze but at least I was flat and lying on my side was OK, I only woke up a couple of times with a severe Claustrophobic feeling but soon went back to sleep! In the morning Ollie said I definitely made the right decision and he wishes he had thought of it too!
