Getting to know the French people!

Post Script for Tuesday....

Well….we walked out of our hotel this evening and found that we were full of Caravan people from the Tour de France….especially the water trucks for Vittel and the St. Michel Stores….what fun. We first drove into town to look for the signs to discover the streets for tomorrow. But, they’re not putting them up until early tomorrow morning we discovered.

Drove back to the hotel and I asked one of the fellows from Vittel if he spoke English….yes….and he stopped what he was doing and walked me to his truck for his map book to give me all the directions for tomorrow. Soon his friend joined us and before we said goodbye he’d given Jim six huge bottles of ice cold water! What fun….and who said the French are not friendly!
