IR12 is a multinational tactical field training physical exercise that will involve much more than 700 personnel mainly from the U.S. Army Europe’s 2nd Calvary Regiment and Croatian armed forces, with contingents from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Slovenia. Macedonia and Serbia will send observers to the physical exercise.

TGV Bordeaux-Paris…

Le samedi 24 janvier 2009 une très forte tempête surnommé ‘Klaus’ à causé d’importants dégâts dans le sud-ouest de la France et le nord de l’Espagne. La forêt des Landes à été détruite à 60%, 11 personnes tuées en France et 2 millions de foyers sans électricité. La région, sans chemins de fer, était comme coupée du reste du pays. Une semaine plus tard, 44000 foyers restaient sans électricité et l’économie locale était sévèrement touchée.

J’étais à Pau (Pyrénées Atlantique) ce weekend-là. Heureusement Pau a échappé au pire avec juste quelques arbres abattus. Par contre, je me suis trouvé coincé sur location, les chemins de fer et transports publics étant hors service. Finalement, j’ai pu rejoindre Bordeaux par un des premiers cars de remplacement qui à traversé un paysage très touché. Voici mon petit voyage…. (Désolé pour la mauvaise qualité de ces images !).

On Saturday the 24th of January 2009, quite powerful gales (later nick-named ‘Klaus’) caused severe harm across the south-west of France and Northern Spain. 60% of the forest of the Landes (consisting practically entirely of pine trees and 1 of the biggest in Europe) was destroyed, 11 individuals killed in France (with much more in Spain) and two million properties with no electricity. The region, its rail network was severely damaged, was cut-off from the rest of the country. One particular week later, 44,000 homes remained with out electricity and the local economy has been severely affected.

I was in Pau (a city in the south-west of France, in the Pyrénées Atlantique / Béarn region) that weekend. Luckily, Pau escaped the worst with just a quantity of fallen trees. Even so, I found myself marooned as the rail networks and public transport ground to a full halt. Finally, I was able to reach Bordeaux on a single of the 1st replacement coaches which crossed this scarred landscape. Right here is my little journey…. (Sorry for the dreadful high quality of the photos!).
