Le Moulin, July 9, 2016—
TEN HOURS on the trail today and still no place to sleep. We quit for a beer in the town of Valeran, then called a taxi to take us to a gîte Jim had found, in the town of Le Mouliin. But there are no restaurants here!
Our host, Didier, offered to drive us up to a nearby place, though, which turned out to be the refuge we'd stay in a few days later. Dinner service was over and all the randonneurs had gone to their beds, but the cook was willing to serve us the menu du randonneur, the rambler's menu: a nice green salad with delicious lettuces and tomatoes, nicely dressed with mustard vinaigrette; slices of jambon cru, and a small ramekin of tartiflette, ubiquitous in Savoie: layers of potato, Reblochon, and Beaufort, all melted together in the oven.
