Day 6

I was awakened this morning by a cuckoo clock. Or, it sounded like a cuckoo clock.

"Did you guys here that bird this morning?" I asked Leo and Steph. "It sounded just like a cuckoo clock."

"Well, yes. Maybe that's because it was a cuckoo bird."

SOOOOORRRRRY! I've never heard one, or if I have I can't recall it. So now Leo and Steph think I'm a moron. Well, it's better they find out sooner rather than later.

Though they did learn I am teachable...

They taught me how to say "TP", as in toilet paper, in French! It's "PQ"-pronounced pay-coo, meaning "papier cul". Which means "ass paper".

Man, I am learning SOOOOO much riding with Leo and Steph!

The ride itself was tough today. Lot's of climbing, though even with that I can't complain. The day was beautiful with bright, warm, sun.

Leo says this means, "the first obstacle to knowledge isn't ignorance, it's not knowing you're ignorant." Food for thought.
