We woke up around 6:15AM, grabbed a quick hotel breakfast and made it onto a train to Belfort, France where our friends are studying. Slept on the train most of the way, had a cabin to ourselves!

We got the tour of the city, had a beer in a small pub and checked out the Fort (very old¬†military¬†base). Here’s some pictures:

We sieged the fort. Handy that there was a 15' metal pole in the bushes...

As always, ALL photos can be seen on the Picasa web album page: http://picasaweb.google.com/jamie.hobson

Afterward our friends packed their bags and we hopped on a train to Lyon, France, where one of our friend’s had another friend on exchange there! It was suppose to be a 2 hour train ride… but ended up being 5 hours… more on that later.
