Our problems paled into insignificance as we learned of the death of one boater, various broken limbs of others, the Capitain at the Marina had a heart attack and is still looking really ill, two boaters' mothers have died and another's brother. What's a little inconvenience compared to all that?
I'm posting this from the Etap Hotel at Annemasse - just across the border from Switzerland, where we have stopped for the first of our 'overnights' on the way to Florence. Tomorrow we use the Mont Blanc Tunnel and head for Allessandria where we do the second stop. It's cold up here, so I packed a hottie and extra fleece blankets.
Off now for a cuppa, a shower and a siesta before an early evening meal.
A bientot mes amis.
