Looking at this discussion, I am almost sorry to have mentioned that I would be gone for a while.....
Let me tell you about my vacation instead:
We went for two weeks to the alpes in france, where we managed to time our arrival just two days before a national holliday. (Song, drinks, festivities, fun and party guaranteed.) On top of that, we also had "The tour de france" come to the village next to our campsite, so we took an afternoon standing by the road, watch the commercial caravanne come by and then we had a lead group pass by (no lance armstrong) then six minutes nothing, then the "peloton" came by (including lance armstrong, but I did not recognize him)
next we went back to the campsite to watch the finish of the ettape, so we saw the leadgroup was overtaken, just a fex kilometers before the finish.
Besides that, we did not do much else as shopping and enjoying the warm summer weather (up to 40 degrees Celcius in the shade), the wind, the (icy cold) river.
I did bring out my kite a couple of times and we did go for a couple of hikes, but other then that, it was a very nice uneventfull vacation.
For now we are planning our next holliday somewhere in december, when we will be going on a trip around egypte. Seeing the piramids and all that kind of stuff.
For now however, I will be exploring more of Teolin and this Citadel.
