Stuck inside of Exeter with the Reading blues again (10 jul 12)

Actually, Exeter's an interesting town. I hadn't been here since the seventies. The cathedral is magnificent, as cathedrals tend to be, and there's a huge rock climbing gym with auto-belay devices, so you don't need a partner to climb. American gyms are too wimpy to install these.


But it continues to rain. I got soaked riding across Dartmoor, and then round and round Exeter looking for a bed 'n' breakfast. And the rain shows no sign of letting up. I don't actually have to get to Reading 'til the end of July, but I thought I'd adapt the old Dylan song for the purpose.
