The ferry boats (in the harbor of Marseilles) are sounding their horns to salute the riders. Yesterday's stage was pretty crazy at the end: the main threat to Armstrong, Beloki, wiped out on a hairpin turn with about about a kilometer to go (various video renditions available here); Beloki broke his femur (every biker's nightmare) and Armstrong actually managed to ride across the turn, dismount to walk his bike over a ditch, the catch up to finish with second place group. Wacky.
Watching the Tour live, a cute kid playing in the room, the windows are letting in the great weather. Life is good.
