Where I stayed
I was getting a little lonely not having anybody to talk to (the French people I have met before Reims don't speak English well enough to have a conversation), so I asked the hostel clerk to put me in a room with some English speakers. That worked out well, with one roommate being an Australian on a 12-month tour of the world and another roommate a 22 year old French guy from Marseille who spoke decent English and knew people in Reims. I went out on the town with him that Saturday night. It turned out to be a good adventure, as I ended up hanging out with a group of 20 year olds who spoke pretty good English
The next day was mostly just overcast, so I went out with the Marseille roommate and saw the cathedral and an old Roman gate. I was a bit hungover from the night before and I think all my cycling has removed any tolerance to alcohol I once had :)
I think I wasted a whole day trying to fix my computer, and after making the problem worse (now my screen would go black after logging in, I reinstalled Windows. Not something you want to do on the road, but luckily I was prepared. Unfortunately, it somehow didn't fix all the problems, but I can at least play video now!
