The good news is that the clutch seems to be fit and well. The van is front-wheel drive and rather back heavy anyway so I think the combination of that and the madly steep hill meant that the tyres just couldn't get any grip. By the way, the storm wasn’t too bad and all the tents were intact the next morning. Now I know I promised no more art stuff and I’m sorry to go back on my word but I’ve just got to mention what has possibly been the highlight of ...
Today was our Tour Leaders birthday - 28 - and she celebrated by taking Sue and I, and one of the other girls in our group, Kristin, on a hike through the Pyranees. We set off up a very steep track leading up from the Luchon Cemetary and for the next one hour and a half it was straight up. It was a very hot day and it wasn't long before our clothes were saturated with perspiration and our water bottles were fast approaching empty.
Well here we are in Luchon and it has taken most of the day to get here. First our train at Bordeaux was delayed by over an hour because the train before ours hit a car on a crossing.

I understand they had a very pleasant ride with gorgeous scenery and arrived in Les in mid afternoon. I set off in a group of five - Wayne and Lori, Michael, Peter ...
We're in Spain now, so it's a good thing I didn't eat all my lunch on the road today - dinner is apparently at 8:30 and I am starving. OTOH wine is ridiculously cheap here - on the order of 1Euro for a glass. If only tomorrow didn't start off with what I suspect may be the nastiest climb of the tour I would take advantage of it, but I am remaining conservative in my approach until we are out of ...
