The fuses clicked at the campsite during the night so we had to start the day with Green Car only half-charged. In Cannes we met with Torben Arp, a seasoned rally-driver and navigator. He has very generously promised to help us prepare for the Monte Carlo Rally for electric cars. We said goodbye and started towards an all-year campsite near Nice we had found on the net. Leaving Nice we were close to zero power. What to do? Luckily Hjalte saw a municipal bus-garage. Sunday-quiet but open. Friendly mechanics let us charge for an hour. On the last drop of power we finally reached the campsite only to find it closed. The only hotel in the village was also closed. I spotted a community-building where some women were cleaning up after a muslim wedding. They let us charge for some hours while Hjalte via our satellite-connection booked a cheap room in Nice. Late, hungry and tired we found Villa Aramis Guesthouse - all closed. Just as we prepared for a miserable night in the car the door was opened. We got a room, there was a kitchen we could use and Green Car got a proper garage with power!
