We got through Toulouse quicker than expected & came on to Bordeaux, 180 Kms in 3 hrs. 50 m, this afternoon. Toulouse was lousy – no hot water, & this morning the light failed at 0800, also the water supply. No hot water even to shave. The best hotel in place was dirty & like an ice house. This one at Bordeaux has central heating on. We expect to be here tomorrow night, & hope to poke our noses into Spain on way back if we can dodge snow, which was very high on the lemon. She wont climb in snow & gets uncontrolable. [sic]
Love, Hubby.
