Today was really my day off and I didn’t do much. I woke up, did my laundry and had a massive sandwich for breakfast, with that sausage I am eating for the past 3 days and I am really sick of.
I cycled the 5km to the town center and started wondering around. Most of the city is relatively newly build and without much interest. I walked down the Pyrenees boulevard, which has a nice view of the mountains, but unfortunately the day was a little hazy, so they were not visible at all. On this road there are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy the view. It also leads to the highlight of the city which is Pau‘s spectacular castle by the river. This is also the area with the most interest, as the neighborhood still has old medieval buildings.
After my sightseeing, I spend a few hours inside the city’s cultural center where there is free and fast wifi! That’s very good, considering two days ago I payedÂ â‚¬4 for an hour in a dark internet cafe, without wifi, using a French layout keyboard which made me type as slow as my grandmother. The guy not only didn’t let me plug my laptop into his network, he didn’t even let me charge it in case his fuses go down!
