“Well, you’ve really broken that!” said the doctor holding the x-ray as she came to see us in the waiting room.
We had a good day cycling to Saumur on Sunday, good hotel, dinner on the square by the river, a free concert in the square. Inge went up to buy a CD from the band, then stepped back on what seemed like a level surface only to fall on a hidden step and break her wrist.
She is doing well after surgery on Monday and a night in the hospital. It will be several months before she can ride a bike again. She’s now a bionic woman with three screws in her wrist (they will come out in six weeks).
The people at the little hotel here (Sohotel by the river) have been very generous and helpful. Tomorrow we head to Amsterdam by train, Thursday we return with a rented van to get the bikes, stay another night in this hotel, then drive back to Amsterdam on Friday. We will spend the next week in the Netherlands and are hoping to get a flight home on August 12.
We’ll be back in France to finish this ride.
