Thheatre, cathederal, rain cloud
I think tomorrow we will make an attempt to get into Italy. The weather is not looking great, the prediction seems to be a rise in temperature to over 20C along with thunderstorms, patchy rain and the occasional sunny period. This is so much better than anything recently, or what we experienced getting here. After tomorrow the weather is set to get worse for a few days, so I think it worth the try.

The plan is to make an early start, head for Geneve, and onward to the Mont Blanc tunnel. The early start means we have a chance to sit out some storms and maximises the chances of the next post being from Italy.

Worst case scenario is we only get to Geneve, I think this is unlikely, it means the weather is really terrible (again). It would not be a disaster if we made it t the tunnel entrance, stayed at Chamonix. I'm hoping for better.

Today we wandered around Bourg En Bresse, it is a pleasant place, quiet and unassuming. I think Hilary took a photo. It was nice to have a break from riding, a rest after the truly dreadful weather getting here. I slept 11 hours last night, a sign of needing a rest.

Oh dear - sorry to hear about all the rain!! Hopefully you will get some better weather soon. On the positive side, at least you aren't stuck in an office with only a fish for company...
