nothing to lose

today i'm in toulouse - i think it's my favourite place so far. there's loads of stuff going on here. its full of cobbled streets with cafes and bookshops and clothes shops and loads of people wondering around, there's loads of young people everywhere, it's a perfect place to sit around in cafes and stare at people. everywhere stinks of weed, especially a record shop i went into where the guy told me he has "nothing but love for brighton". then he sold me some dub, and told me about some stuff thats going on tonight - although im not sure if im in the mood for a whole night of ragga, i'll see.
my guidebook says that all the "students and arty types" like to hang out in arnaud-bernard, but when i went there i only saw arabs selling hash and a man with no teeth shouting and coughing like a donkey. but it's much nicer around st-georges and just generally in the middle of town, i spent most of the day wondering around there.
also found out where to go tonight, apparently around place st.pierre is where everyone goes so im gonna have a nap at my totally shit hotel (looked better on the net) and go and see what thats all about.
meanwhile here are some slightly crap photos from today.

That man walking across the square has abnormally long arms. Maybe he is one of the four bastards.
