Le Tour de France 2008 – Day 1: Stage 14, Nîmes to Digne-Les-Bains

-

Bonjour, pour le premier temps en Le Tour de France 2008. (It’ll get worse, we’ve got two French/English dictionaries with us).

Digne-les-Bains, Saturday afternoon, 38 degrees and U2 are telling us it’s a “Beautiful Day” – that Bono, he knows everything.

We were supposed to meet up with American reader, John Larsen in Forcalquier, watch the race and sample the local fare with a BBQ, however Jet2.com kept us sat on the tar at Turnhouse for an hour before take off, scuppering our chances of catching the race.

And John forgot about the local fare too – c’est la vie!
