Some great climbing in the Ballons d'Alsace today. A series of peaks of around 1,200 meters, plenty of sunshine, still a fair amount of snow at the top. I descend into les Vosges to find a room chez l'habitant (basically just a room in someone's house) at the tourism office of a small town. The elderly couple who I stay with are super nice, retired butchers making a little extra money by renting rooms. Dinner consists of a big plate of pasta at a local Italian restaurant.
