The hottest day yet!

I rode from Rennes les Bains to Perpignan, and it was HOT.

Can you see the castle in this photo?  I probably wouldn’t have noticed it if it wasn’t for the flag.  The Cathares built their castles out of local stone to camouflage them.


here are closer pictures



I was sooo hot and tired, this was about 25 k outside of Perpignan, and I was ready for the day to be done.

hahah oh and that morning, I cut myself on a baguette. How are these ridiculous injuries possible?
next up, I lose a toenail due to a cucumber.


Today I am headed to Spain and I am nervous because of the heat, the language, and the mountains. I will probably be in Barcelona in the next two days and then decide from there whether to stay in Spain, or take a train or a bus somewhere else…
