Another side of France

In the morning we decided to go to the capital of the Alps – Grenoble. After driving for more than an hour in order to find a parking-space on Sunday, we found out that there is absolutely nothing to do and/or to see there and went back to the car (after a long conversation with my mother and a quick stop at the local Doner).
Our next stop was at Briancon, and a long drive it was. The landscape was both spectacular and exhausting.
We went to a questionable “hotel”, righ in the middle of the old city. It had the most nauseating smell but had cost only 30 Euro. The owner (who spoke only French – like most French people) told us that he closes the front door, so we must get in and out the “hotel” through the back door). In the evening we went to a Moroccan restaurant on the Grand Cannal Rue. I ate a delicious meal of couscous with lamb meat. Avital was drooling. She had to settle with the tuna fish salad.
Suprisingly, when Avital and I came back to the hotel, both the back and the front doors were closed. We tried to open the back door, but were left with the door knob in our hands… We didn’t know what to do and the temprature outside had dropped tremandously. Eventually, right before we called the police, the owner woke up and yelled at us (in French), but for us – having a worm place to sleep at and re-unite with our belongings was the most important thing. Tomorrow is Avital’s last day in her vacation and sho worries about tomorrow morning and the door knob…
