NEIL YOUNG ROCKS NIMES, FRANCE

JULY 22, 6,30AM
I saw Neil Young was going to being touring in Europe at the same time I was. I put several of the tour dates for France and Italy on my Google calendar. So Google reminded me 2 weeks before the show in Nimes, I was still in Spain, I looked on the map and figured I could ride there in time for the show.
I rode from Colera, Spain to Sete, France. I rode some of the most beautiful roads and mistakenly rode some of the most dangerous roads Ive EVER ridden. I stayed in a Hostel in Sete a couple days then took the train to Nimes a few days before the show. I went to the box office and secured one of the last 100 tickets that were left.
I was walking to the show (long way from Hostel) tried to hitchhike, Nope. Met a women, Jo who lived in France near the border by Colera. She traded her ticket for a standing floor ticket so we could see the show together.

    Hi Jeff
    Thanks so much to make me allowed to be with you in the front of stage and share the emotions on the Neil Young concert in Nimes !!
    An incredible concert, out of the world, as we used to say in the old days…
    And thanks also for the pictures in the youth hostel with the friends arbouring tue same t-shirt of the concert… Althought I realized I had to be on a real diet as I got really fat those last months…
    I read last evening all the news from your trip from the beggining and I admire you to be on a trip like that on your own
    I myself like to be on my own for a few days but not for an entire one year trip around the world!!!
