Tiredness

French-speaking people can just listen the video... For the others, an extract:

Bruno: "(...) and what is in the lake"
Romaric: "A huge trout"
Bruno: "And what does it eat?"
Romaric: "It eats cows..."

I have to concede this occured after a rather long and sunny day, and that I wasn't in possession of my full brain capabilities...

Someone is lucky to have such a great cook as a sister! :D

Look at the last success of my sister: pistachios macarons, and many of them... I suspect it is a technique of my sister to make me visiting her (plus my brother in law, and my terrible nephews) in cold and rainy Alsace! :D

Skiing Aneto - Climbing in Garraf

Well, I haven't published anything about climbing or skiing stuff for ages, don't know why... Maybe this was linked to the fact I didn't take picture for a while? Which I can't explain neither...

Anyway, I stop philosophizing around... I made an effort for this long weekend. We went with Joan skiing the Mont Blanc of the Pyrenees, i.e. the highest summit of the range, in the name of Mr Aneto. Usually, this is the last ski tour of the season, but the average snow conditions made it an early season objective. It was pretty good, minus the CO poisoning at the hut due to the fact that an old gas heater has, somehow, been running all night... Fortunately, the dose was not too high, and just gave us a bad night, a massive headache, and the bad sensation to have a solid saliva...

Thereafter, we planned to climb around, but the weather was cold and wet there, and we came back to sunny Barcelona, for some climbing at Garraf, Jonatan joining us for the day. This is only one of the many climbing crags around Barcelona, but I like this place in particular: it offers excellent climbing, and its very scenic with its belaying ledge 50m above the sea. Just a shame that some people treat it as a rubbish bin (see last picture), with I have seen in a few other pretty places around... No further comment about this...
