Rainbow Tour 2005 Travel Log - Day 3 - Saturday 7.9.05

Today was of little interest really. I got up and had a mediocre full English breakfast (eggs, sausage, baked beans, pan seared tomato, fried bread, and tea) at the hotel, then waited around till the last minute, writing my post cards and grabbing a pint before leaving. I headed to airport knowing that I had some time to kill, but to my dismay, my wait turned into hours before I could get my flight to Rennes. I had some lunch, tried to read my book (a collection of fantasy short stories I had picked up in Newark), and otherwise just waited, and waited, and waited. In total the plane was delayed more than 4 hours, and so my own wait was abouyt 5 hours, for a plane ride that barely took 45 minutes! Ah, the vagaries of travel...

Nonetheless I arrived and got a cab to my hotel, the ultra-modern Hôtel Ibis Centre Gare Sud literally attached to the Gare SNCF (the train station in Rennes) and a mere two minutes from Skol an Emsav where I would be taking my Breton classes. My room, 612, overlooked the front, hence quiet side of the hotel, but the view was rather poor, since my window faced the yard of a woman's prison! Nonetheless, my room was fairly spacious, bright, and as I said very modern. I like the Ibis chain, and even though the hotel was only two-stars it was comfortable, pleasant, most importantly, I had my own airconditioning! (The other two hotel had been four and three-stars respectively, but I prefered the Ibis by far!)

Alas, on this trip I was not the recipient of any sexual indiscretions whatsoever, it was a month long hiatus from being indiscrete. Maybe I should start another blog though where I reveal my dirty laundry, delving back into the past couple years would offer rich fodder for homotextual pornographers replete with donkey hung strangers passing in the night and the debauching and deflowering of the recently legal... hehe ;)
