And we're off.......

If leaving your house is the official start of a pilgrimage then we have begun. It was a rocky start with our taxi driver almost plowing into a car in front of us. We smelled burning brakes or rubber. Or both. After an uneventful flight over Greenland we are now at a Stansted airport hotel in London to catch our flight tomorrow to Biarritz in France. This hotel has a very cold atmosphere. All glass and steel and high ceilings. In the middle of the lounge there is a 50 ft high glass pillar full of wine bottles. A "cat woman" uses cables to fly up and down to retrieve bottles for customers. Quite unique.
