The Convent

Day 33 5/16/17
Lelin Lapujolle to Aire-Sur-L’Adour

A fairly mundane walk of going downhill ⅓ to the flats. Walking along railroad tracks for a ⅓. The Walking through urban sprawl for ⅓. First day in a while nothing stood out. Although, I have to say most of the GR65 is spectacular.

When we reach Aire-Sur-L’Adour we go immediately to the tourisme information to book the Italian plane and train segments to Milan. We also book some more Gîtes.

As we walk through town I s.ee a seamstress sewing. I stop and get my day bag fixed. She does a fantastic job!Then head To the Gite and to meet Clive and maya.

The Convent has been renovated and does not hav nuns anymore . It is now operated as a private Gite. The main area is a huge gathering room. Two small siderooms The Convent

The Convent has been renovate and has no Nuns. It is now Operated as a private Gite. The main area is a huge gathering room. Two small siderooms are very small dormitory style lodging and ours has bunk beds. Then there's our roommate - Max. He introduces himself as a very loud snorer. He proves to be formidable later that night. He wasn't joking. Max is probably retired and he lives In the Reunion islands. He lake 30km a day. He initially speaks Superb English but decides for some reason to speak on Only French a couple of hours later.

We head out to get something to eat electing for a kebab meal. We check out the nearby church and run into a touring center cyclist named Frank a German from Bavaria. He has a great bicycle setup for touring. It cost him $3000 euros and he said it was the best investment he ever made according to him.

Like most nights i plan on passing the time in the common area on the Internet, writing my blog and researching for future days. When everyone leaves the common area common the owner comes out and says I must go to bed. I compromise and go to the bedroom and close the door and stay right at the backside of the door. it's funny the things I do for the Internet.

The only problem is that there's a motion station light right there too I remember you move very slowly and not get detected.

I eventually get tired and go to bed and fall asleep..
