We are now on the train from Bordeaux (from Paris) to Bayonne. We will be getting into Bayonne at a little after 11:00 PM and will spend the night there. It has been a tiring day. I don’t sleep well on planes so I’ve gotten about 3 or 4 hours of sleep, mostly on trains. We’ve gotten the navigation around French rail stations down pretty well and it is actually pretty nicely organized. It’s a skill we won’t use again on this trip but…you never know. The country side as seen from the train has been nice but the views around Bordeaux, which are supposed to be beautiful, were in the dark of night. Tomorrow we make our way from Bayonne to St. Jean Pied de Port and the walk begins. Things should be looking up from there, literally, as we climb into the Pyrenees.
