Lille to Reading

Lille to Reading

Thursday, Jul 19, 2001

@ Adrian Tritschler

Thoughts on Lille — for the first time in France I seem to have seen lots of beggars and homeless people. Maybe it’s just the first time I’ve been in a big city, maybe I just haven’t noticed. Two-star hotels, kebab shops and sex shops. Maybe I should have tried to move further away from the train station. A big bustling city, certainly lots of construction around the two stations. French police uniforms suddenly struck me as appearing very functional, Australian and British appearing more symbolic by comparison.

Rain, more rain, then a little more rain. A fine day to be leaving the mountains. Amazingly, we all managed to get up in time for the 8 am start, crammed everything and everyone into the van and the car and drove to Grenoble. A bizarre feeling sitting in a car and watching the world go past without having to pedal. Almost as bizarre was listening to The House of the Rising Sun playing on the radio … in French.

@ Adrian Tritschler

dst. (km) Today 39.3 Trip total 3159.8 Odometer 85.2 We left Vaujany around 10:00 to ride up to l’Alpe d’Huez. Some chose the route via Bourg d’Oisans and the main climb, the rest of us headed up to Villard Reculas and then around the side of the mountain to Huez. The unfenced vertiginous drop off the side of the road was too much for some, Richard flat out refused to ride on the right hand side and sidled along the wrong side of the road, hugging the rock walls.

The river was shallow, but very strongly flowing, I walked in up to my knees, dived in facing upstream, and came up ten metres downstream from where I started!

I was feeling sorry for myself and equally sorry for the others sharing the room. Spent much of the day being a tourist and walking around, by lunch time I wasn’t sure whether my aching legs were from cycling, walking, or just from being sick.

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
