To Monaco then…

If the blog was quiet today because I was en route to Monaco (I still am) and I did it by a more scenic route, by way of Magny Cours, which was rather a sad moment, because it seems such a waste to have such a place not being used for F1. The motorway that was never quite built in time for the Grand Prix now extends beyond the track and edges ever further southward. It will be a while yet before the fast roads are completed to Roanne, but the mighty avenues of Napoleonic plane trees are fine for now. Life moves slowly in these parts. I ended up skirting around Saint-Etienne and then climbing up over les Monts du Pilat to then descend into the deliciously sunny Rhône Valley, where I am stopping for the night. So if there is anything happening in the F1 world, it can wait…
