At last - an Internet!

A welcome glass of wine at Durban Airport

We can't post too much here - the computer is too slow (and has a French keyboard) but just to let you know that we arrived in Lourdes after three planes - Durban to Johannesburg, Jo'burg to Madrid and Madrid to Toulopuse: one bus and a two hour train ride to Lourdes.
We have been writing blog posts on scraps of paper and will post as soon as we get to a place with a faster machine. This is coming to you from Eysus which isn't even on the map we've got - came across it by chance when we saw a sign for a Bar and decided to stop for coffee.
On our way to Sarrance (day 4 of walking) and will sleep in a converted monastery tonight.
Over and out for now!
