We wandered, almost alone, through its various areas for the early part of the afternoon, then parted ways with Avril to come back to our hotel. After a short rest and dry clothes we headed out again in the sunshine for the last loop of the hop-off-hop-on tour. We took the metro to the beginning of the route [ in the Olympics Area (1992)] and rode the full loop around an old industrial area the Mediterranean shore (now being redeveloped as a technology hub) without getting off. By then clouds were rolling in again, and since we never learn, we were without rain gear again [4 ponchos and 2 umbrellas back in the room]. Luckily, we got to the subway and from thee to a covered, outdoor restaurant right across from our hotel, before the heavens opened. So we sat in splendid dryness, watching everyone scurry along the street.
We had a very leisurely supper, but finally had to make the dash to the hotel. Now we're warm and dry once again.
