we spent a gorgeous day in the city of perpignan yesterday, winding our way through the maze of crazy narrow european streets and exploring the huge old medieval castle. when night fell later back at camp, we all made our way to the local town for an outdoor club experience called “obsession”, danced all night, and have had an incredibly hungover sunday - all sitting around the camp groaning, snacking on junk and watching the inbetweeners, madagascar and superbad on the laptop. c’était brill ♥
the last two days have been above body-temperature, so in the interests of “health and safety” we’ve taken them off to recuperate! cue a trip to the ice-cold plunge pools in the limestone gorge, and a barbecue tonight at which we will be feasting on rump de cheval and chargrilled red pepper. hnng can’t wait ♥
last night was deleeecious. after a half-day of mapping we all stockpiled on meat from the supermarché and stuffed our faces at the barbecue that the fantastique campsite owner, monsieur bob, held for us. if you guys ever get the chance, you have got to try horse steak, cooked medium-rare so it melts in your mouth.. almost as good as ox!
i never thought i’d be able to cope in this weather, especially not with having to walk 10km a day hammering at rocks
but we’re doing great, our maps are taking shape, and the camping life is still fabuloso. i’ve taken a ton of photos which i’ll prep and post as soon as i can get my laptop charged enough to last more than ten minutes! blimey
we went to the local music festival the other night for some reggae, amazing. walking the 6km there and back with only beer for sustenance was so very worth it ♥
sorry about the lack of postage, internet here isn’t amazingly available (and i’m just so busy licking rocks and chasing lizards) - just a quick update to say i’m having a bon time! hopefully now i’ve settled in, i’ll be able to pop over here to reception to use the wifi for a few minutes most evenings to actually keep my blog alive, as well as posting some of the awesome pictures i’ve taken so far.
it’s SO DAMN HOT and i’ve definitely already burned, but we’ve already had some great times in our little tent village among the pine trees and have been cooking up some yummy meals on the diddy camping stove.
