|Ann and Lauren are not totally dissatisfied with our accommodations today. Due in part to the experiments with the new TGV lines and to a massive celebration scheduled in Les Sables this weekend, we were forced to take places in first class for this trip. The celebrations in Les Sables are to honor the winners of one of the world's most challenging races. The Vendée-Globe is a course around the world in solitary yacht, leaving the port of Les Sables and returning there with no harbor en route. The sailors of this race are real heroes indeed.|
