Rainin' on a Sunday

It's a gloomy, rainy day here in Toulon... not exactly ideal for a game day, but we're holding out hope that the rain will let up before 6 p.m. tonight. In the mean time, the players are spending the day relaxing, watching movies or playing cards.

A tradition has started among those in the group that kills time by playing cards. The day's loser has to wear a pink shirt the following day, so everyone knows that they've lost.

It's not a good day to be walking around on what is our last day here, but that's okay because EVERYTHING shuts down on Sunday with the exception of one of the city's markets. Anyone hoping to pick up souvenirs, get a hair cut, or even pick up some necessities is generally out of luck. Unless those necessities are pastries or produce from the outdoor market. All the pharmacies, malls, shoppes, etc. are closed on Sundays.
