“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 14 – 18th May 2009 – Monday – Casteljaloux, France.

Didn’t manage to get up in time to go into town in the morning, but went this afternoon and found an internet café with Wifi, so ordered a bottle of wine (as one does) and settled down with the lappie to get my fix of online life and blog away, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the internet connection working! So we downed the bottle and moved onto the second suggested café… which was closed, bugger. We couldn’t even find the third! So we gave up and came back for food and a cuppa. Will try again tomorrow.
Casteljaloux is at least bathed in sunshine today and so we have spent much of the afternoon either watching the river rushing past our pitch and sleeping (me) or playing guitar and sorting his tools again. (Ant).

  2. 14 days and you're still in France?? I reckon you need to pick up the pace :) Al x
