North to Alaska?

I have just had a very wet walk back home from Lavelanet (23 kms). Fortunately, the rain started after I did, otherwise it might have deterred me from setting off. I was like the proverbial drowned thing when I arrived home.

What a difference a day makes, and a flight of 1 hr 20 minutes on a Ryanair cattle truck, and a 3 hour drive home, and a four hour sleep. When we left Rome yesterday the temperature was 40 degrees Celsius. As Gay drove home from dropping me off in Lavelanet this morning, the thermometer was at 14 degrees! And we are on almost exactly the same latitude, due East, not due North or in Sarah Palin's ex-territory.
