amazing Alsacians! A few days before, we had emailed one of them (Marc, Yvoine's uncle) to say, we'll be there on such day at 12pm. At 12pm exactly, we were there. So was he, with another couple of dozens of friends, all there to welcome us. They came on their bikes (some of them had to dust them!) and cycled the first 35 km in France with us. We were just overwhelmed to meet these friendly faces, eager to talk about our adventures, to share a few stories, and yet again, develop friendships through the bikes! Really, a big thank you to all our Alsacian friends, in matter of minutes, we felt like we were home!

ah, ces incroyables alsaciens! Quelques jours auparavant, nous avions emaile l'un d'entre eux (Marc, l'oncle d'Yvoine) pour dire, nous serons a tel endroit, tel jour a midi. A midi pile, nous etions effectivement la. Et lui aussi, accompagne de deux douzaines d'amis, tous la pour nous accueillir. Ils sont venus sur leurs velos (certains ont meme du les depoussierer!) et ont pedale les 35 premiers km en France avec nous. Nous etions tellement heureux de retrouver ces visages sympathiques, avides de partager nos aventures et de raconter quelques histoires, et surtout, comme si souvent auparavant, heureux de developper de nouvelles amities grace aux velos! Vraiment, un immense merci a nos amis alsaciens qui en quelques minutes, nous ont fait nous sentir chez nous!
