Day 242 - Metz - North East France

Last few weeks of the trip, a gentle wind-down through quiet, peaceful France, a chance for reflection and some space in which to prepare my mind for all that will be involved in returning. All of the big adventures, nights out and strange random happenings are behind me. Or so I thought - it seems this trip is determined to keep it up right 'til the end.

Last night involved making new friends in a kebab shop and proceeding on to a hot, sweaty underground cavern of a club where French punk bands were making lots of noise, drinking industrial quantities of pression, being offered non-legal things to smoke at the bar, hanging around with ageing French punks and just generally making it impossible for me to cycle anywhere today.

I like Metz.

    Don't do it! Don't come back!

    You'd have a good case for re-publishing This-Week_I_Hate in full on your return due to the deja vu groundhog year feeling in this pitiful city. Yes, there are men putting up bloody garden sheds int he shopping precinct again so that seasonal con artists can sale scented candles and mulled wine at the '2005 German Christmas Market'.

    What a load of Shite!
    This really has brought on a fit of premature bah-humbug.
    fuggin grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......
