Chris sets off

First stop, 9.30 a.m. – Notre Dame Cathedral. They were distributing “rameaux” – branches – to the faithful as part of early Easter service. Good luck for the year, they said. Mr. T. now has one tucked into his backpack.

Noon – we have walked south-west; time for lunch. He has a hamburger, I have couscous.
And now we part – I to get the metro back to Paris,
he to walk for two solid months to Montpellier. We find today’s route – the Avenue de Paris – is right next to the restaurant. Another good omen. And off he goes.
As always – brave, crazy, inspiring, the best.
