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.
