Where I stayed
Paris - Hotel Madeleine Haussman
So we had booked in our inspection at 8:20.......how's that, booking an inspection before you can checkout. Right on the dot Pierre fronted to do the inspection and that prompted an arguement as "Dirty Pierre" tried to stick me for some damage to one of the cupboard handles which was already broken when we arrived.
We won't stay in this "Lodges de Pierres" again, because Pierre is..........just dirty
Weather this morning is a shocker, wet, cold and extremely low cloud. Given we are at 1800m you have to expect the air will be cool. We were very lucky yesterday with such a beautiful day for the Tour stage
Pretty uneventful drive down to Grenoble to catch the TGV to Paris at 12pm. Dad has been looking forward to this TGV trip. 300kmh on a train is impressive. Paris is 3hrs away, just in time to get to our hotel and see the last few riders complete today's time trial around Grenoble.
We made it in good time to see Cadel kick some Luxembourg ass...and some Spanish ass too!!
Tomorrow on the Champs Elysees will be magnificent.
PS. Not many photos today, photographer's day off.
