… found another route across the Pyrenées

Tried out another route across from Spain to France, a scenic route from Jaca, via Isaba to Arrette near Oloron Ste Marie. Lots of hairpins, so manual control of the gearbox was very useful, and we saw only two other cars after we left the main road, so a quicker trip than we expected. About 5,000' at the summit, and we averaged about 9 l/100km fuel consumption, very commendable with the payload we had (including 75 bottles of wine). We shall try it again when we don't have a ferry booking to meet, since there are lots of minor side roads and tracks going off it. We we're lucky with the weather, too; it was raining on the Autovia del Mediteranee yesterday, and foggy on the Autovia Mudajar this morning.
