“I saw you standing there and turned in the roundabout and came back. I know it’s difficult here” the man who picked us up said. “If you want to you can smoke,” he waved at the window.
“Thank you, but we don’t smoke” we said as dire straits pumped from the loudspeakers.
This was our second ride of the day and it took us three hours just to get out of Neuchatel. The sun was burning and we both felt like fainting onto the pavement. We had a short break brushing oats into our hair to get the dirt and oil out of it. Not showering for ten days does weird things to your hair, but oats can do miracles.
