I then took the train to go to Blanche's place who lives right next to the train station. Then we talked a lot and her and her husband took me to a very nice restaurant in a village to eat a flammekueche. Table 75. Then, on our way back we passed through Reichstett the village I have been living in for 2 years.
Also I had to realise something important: I had to give up so many things in my life to reach this goal that I have. I had to make so many sacrifices, whereas I could have stayed in one place and met more people, have more friends. It would have been nice, but I decided to not lead that kind of life. The same, as far as my relationship is concerned, I have decided to be with someone much older than me, and who is far away, but that is my life, my decision. There are so many things that I have chosen, I do not regret anything, but I am getting scared about what life is in the end.
From 3pm on I have been walking to my host's place in Montpellier. At the very beginning the route was a bit confusing but people were quite helpful so I managed to get there without too many difficulties.
When I arrived I met a Polish Couchsurfer from Belgium, I only have his family name "Sawicki" very nice, and Natou with her friend, Daniel. They are such welcoming people both of them, they have a lot of knowledge to share about everything. I even learnt that my ancestors (the Cathares) were vegetarian in the past, what a fact! And of course we talked a lot about African stuff. Then Daniel, another Couchsurfer from Brazil arrived, we exchanged our contacts if he ever comes to London. We also met two other Couchsurfers, a couple from Spain and Senegal. Seriously I loved that evening, watching videos of African, dances, music etc.
Something I have to add about Montpellier is that it does not look as the prettiest city of France at first, but its people are lovely, and helpful.
Afterwards, when it was sadly time to leave, I took the pretty tramway of Montpellier to reach the train station and meet the carpoolers to continue my route. We were 5 in the car, Sylvain was the driver, it is so amazing that we are able to organise ourselves that way to communicate, share, save. Communities still exist in the world and this is fantastic. I want to continue all this, because in the Western world we are all divided, we thus need a way to get back together and meet, and above all, when travelling. It's more fun, everyone has to agree.
When I got to Narbonne I had a snack near the train station, of course it was bloody expensive but I said thanks when I got the food. It is important to me, especially when someone gives me some food, to say "thank you". Someone sitting next to me looked at me saying "there's no need to say thank you at that price". I was surprised and said nothing. In my opinion, even if I have to give money to get food, whatever the amount should be, I have to be always thankful toward the person who made it for me. Otherwise I could have gone to a supermarket and have some biscuits, that's it.
I did the last part of the trip by train, from Narbonne to Limoux. When I was in the train from Carcassonne to Limoux I saw Yoana by pure chance, it was great to see her again. I have spent the evening with my parents, my uncle and my cousin who live in the same village. Relka is so old now ...
Amateurish video, only observe images and sounds.
We stayed a little bit in the village to wander around before coming back to the field where we have been eating along with Jeanne's parents. (By the way: they are both teachers, philosophy and sport. I wish I had a philosophy teacher in the family it is so interesting, but as far as languages are concerned I do not have anyone able to teach me that thus I have to get documented by myself, in a way it gives me some pride but I feel uncultivated at all when I talk to people.)
The evening, I observed magic fireworks from below. First time ever that I am so close and that I see so beautiful lights. It is not that hard if you try to count all the fireworks I have been attending in my life.
We left the village to go back to Soulac-sur-Mer - because they both finally loved it!. I've been reading some lines in a few book of the bookshop in the main street of the town. I am attached to Venus and Jupiter, the reasons of my attraction for a few stuff are getting clearer.
