October 16

Silly, that is the word.

We left Clermont before dawn and walked out of the city and its only by dawn that we were on the way to HH. We had stopped in between to have some bread and then started hitch-hiking up north eventhough we werent expected in Bourges before the late evening.

Finally, a young new driver stopped and took us. He was going to Vichy, so did we. The drive was rather awful as he was still a learning driver but at last we made it safely in the tiny peugeot.

Once there, our first task has been to get some warm. Which we did in the supermarket, buying some junk food, which we ate on the bench in a kind of park-square. We got some great encounter in our silly joyful moment of looking at children learning 'road safety rules' by the police... having first the visit of the well-known french toothless woman, asking for money and not enjoying our negative answer. After her visit, we had the joy to look at some copulating dogs and being surrounded by pigeons... to kill time our hobby became pigeon feeding. Correction: pigeon hiting, yes the head of a pigeon is harder than a peanut!!!

Finally, I felt asleep on the bench under the sun while Dylan went to enjoy some Poy. The day flew by pretty fast and finally we quest the town for toilet and the place to get out. After a long and tired HH we moved somewhere else and someone took us to the highway where we stood at the toll booth.

We were rather tired then and not pretty active, luckely someone took us to a petrol station along the highway and from there a Spanish man, all the way to Bourges exit. We walked along the highway out and it didnt take long before a guy took us for few km making it nearer the city. He was so impress that he went to introduce us to his friends, after the little awkard moment we walked into town and managed to find the spot at Maison de la Culture and waited for Pierre-Jean (pjr) to arrive.

We had still a great day, with the sun and lots of songs and movie quotes to laugh at. It was a pretty exhausting day though. I enjoyed :)
