A rest day: Over the years one of the question that causes discussions by environmentalist in the one that does a bath use more water then a shower. Now after 10 days spent on my bike (includes practice days) I needed to have a hot bath to get a thermal treatment to my throbbing muscles. With a steaming half filled tub I sank to bliss. This is my first bath in at least 15 years being a confirmed shower person. Now I can say with conviction that a bath takes more water, however, it gives greater satisfaction to declare that ecology is irrelevant when you ache and you can get relief for your body. The bottom line is that they both do not take a lot of water and give great pleasure. Therefore I have moved on and spent the day walking around in the rain with a warm glow. Below are some of the sights of the Rose city Toulouse.
