we very slowly got up of our beds. Our
whole bodies had remembered all that sporting time spent the
... nothing can be done, our ski passes were bought and mainly
... we were there for it ! For down-hill skiing !
Me and Jirka got rid of that morning tightness with walking
for baguettes to a small bakery that was situated nearby "our"
house. And when we were back, hot
tea, coffee and substantial breakfast of some cheese and ham
prepared by Hana and Jitka were waiting for us. Yes, it was
something what we needed ... We all would be prepared for
other strenuous day.
And then again "Let's go !" we headed for Le Houches.
Everything went off as
on Monday. Parking, the short queue, the
ride up by the cableway to the Prarion area, fixing our skis
and :"Go down !" we started our other winter exercise. And as
yesterday ... down, up ... down, up ... down, up ... we enjoy our
holiday time of down-hill skiing in the middle of beautiful
sceneries. What a pity the weather was a bit worse than
day. It was cloudy and
occasionally it was
snowing. However no problem. We enjoyed those excellent
ski terrains and did our best to use up our time over there.
At about noon we
had a rest and light lunch at the "Le Prarion" hotel. It's
true, we were tired enough, so we finished our afternoon
skiing at about 2:15 p.m. and at 2:30 p.m. we were already
going down by the cableway cabins
Le Houches. Jirka went for car, we loaded our stuff and
returned to Chamonix. Ah, what relief it was to be back "home"
in the chairs with coffee and our preferred cans. Yes, of course
we love sports, we love skiing but the similar way we love the
rest after it ...
Of course we weren't lazy people for long time. At 5:15 p.m.
we went out to do sightseeing and to try to send some
emails of my PDA for our friends. The "wifi" point was
situated in the information center. But there was
some problem with my connection so I gave it up after about
half an hour. Maybe next. And we headed for something to eat.
There was a time for dinner. We walked through the historical
part of the town and found a good looking small restaurant. It
was very nice inside also, so we decided to stay there and to
try something special. Unfortunately we made mistake,
misunderstood French names of meals very well so we didn't
enjoy our dinners as we expected. However wine was
delicious and it saved the day.
Well. Dinner was forgotten.
All is well that ends well ... Sipping wine we scheduled our
Wednesday program. We arranged to have a rest without skiing
next day and we decided to make a trip by a cog railway "Tramway
du Mont Blanc" from the lower station in "Le Fayet" to the
upper station "Bellevue". The brochures said there is
wonderful view to the Mont Blanc. Our decision was also
influenced by weather forecast for Wednesday that said about
snow and awful clouds. We would see ...
At about 9 p.m. we came back and before long we were all
