With Torben Arp in the back seat we went through the second part of the rally route. When we needed a break we stopped at a cafe and had chocolate croisants. The power-meter in Green Car acted up again. We thought we had plenty of power when we rolled back to Nice. So it came as chock when Green Car suddenly - and for the very first time on the whole circumnavigation - stopped with an empty battery. (Actually the car is made to stop when there is still 20% battery-power left in order to protect the battery.) As luck would have it the dear car had stopped right outside the door of our hotel! After half an hour with power from the kitchen window of Villa Aramis Green Car could drive down to the garage and charge.
