Sunset. I walk up to the monastery to enjoy the scenery. The tourists return to their hotels and the buzz in the main street, la rue de citadel, ebbs and fades away. Finally some tranquillity. The municipal refuge at which I am staying closes at ten, so I still have time. Sitting on the hill, I watch the scenery as the sun goes down. Reflections on the past and visions of the future turn up.
Everyday life is far away. Tomorrow is yet to come, and lost in thoughts I sit there and let my mind and eyes wander. What is it that brought me here? What is it that lies ahead of me?
I pack my things and head down to the refuge. Ten minutes to ten. Ten minutes before they lock the doors. Time to get a good cap of sleep to be ready for tomorrow's adventures.
