Day 2. Frenching it up

We woke up bright and early (9:30am) and discovered that Michael (who had arrived the evening before), had gone to the shops to buy fresh bread+jam+yogurts, so breakfast was quite an improvement on the previous night's dinner.

After a lazy morning, we finally got going and headed out to another middle distance training in a nearby forest. Once again it was about 4km to the start, so none of us were particularly keen on running hard. We instead decided to break the course into about 3/4 controls per section and met up after each section, alternating between running  sections slowly and then at race pace)

Walking back Tim bravely decided to walk through a herd of cows but soon abandoned that idea when they slowly started surrounding him. We then decided to run back to the campsite to reduce time on the legs. Soon after we took turns showering to cool down from the excessive heat.

We then took a nap in the shade while Jan Erik disappeared into the forest to set up his hammock. He returned a few minutes later to inform us that it was a two person hammock and he was lonely, but no-one took the hint. (Though he might have been referring to a certain Swiss meisie)

It was then unanimously voted upon that we should go for a quick visit to France (a 15min train ride away) to add a country to our lists. We ended up walking into the next town to go buy some groceries (which were almost half the price of in Switzerland) and then having to take a bit of a jog back to make the train.




After getting back, we went to the field to play some boule. Roark took the lead at the start, but Tim soon caught up until the scores were tied at five a piece. At this stage Michael and Jan Erik were a couple of points behind and Anton was on a seemingly pathetic one.






We took a break for a dinner of pasta with ham, melted cheese and sauce. Short on plates we amassed all the tupperwares we could find whilst Roark got to use the pot's lid.



After dinner we all sat down on the bench outside, probably because it was the best place to find WiFi. Anton, fired up from the dinner break thought it would be a great idea to play boulle's from the bench. Before we'd blinked Anton had scored a good couple of points and was well in the game once again. The game to ten culminated rather surprisingly with a round that scored Anton an incredible 3 points in which the boulle balls were left to the mercy of the trampoline.



It was then time for some dessert and then bed.


Quotes of the day:

Jan Erik: Your balls are bigger than mine... it's so that they don't bang each other.

Jan Erik: I don't need a backup girl, but if I did, I could get one easily.

Jan Erik: I could've chosen anyone girl I wanted

Anton: That's a Ferrari coming. 2min later, oh wait- it's a train.


Lesson of the day: Don't steal cake from Jan Erik (as Roark and Anton found out)


Illegal activity of the day: Buying half tickets to France (and none for the way back..)
