Pyrenees

So far, in 3 days, we've covered 250km with about 6000m of climbing.
The tour of the pyrenees is turning out to be far more rugged than the
tour of the alps are --- we had a long climb this morning with a super
short 16% grade descent. So fast and furious even Roberto called it
scary.

I was afraid the Pyrenees would be disappointing after the alps, but
it's really quite pretty in its own special way. Much more bucolic
than the alps, which is more majestic.
