Spain to France


Posted on 20th June, by CClinton in Vince Gee. Comments Off

Today’s stage started in Spain and finished in France. The hotels we stayed at during this stage race were pretty good. A fair amount of room (by Euro standards) and pretty good food. Today though we finished in France and are staying at a pretty poor excuse for a hotel. Our room (I’m rooming with Geoff our other mechanic here) is about 8 or 9 feet by 6 or 7 feet. Not even enough room to open our suitcases. I have to open it on top of my bed, get what I need and close it and put it in the corner. A closet is bigger than this room.
For dinner we had lettuce (supposed to be a salad but it was lettuce only), over cooked (and thus dry as a bone) chicken, and something supposed to be soup. I had about a third of my dinner and Arno (our camper driver) and I made plans for a real dinner elsewhere. Down the street was a sign from heaven. A big golden M. Yes, a McDonalds. While we ate, our conversation was over heard by a family. They were from Salt Lake City and also noticed our US Postal shirts and two of them had to have a picture with Arno and I in front of the French Mickey Ds.
