Arrived in Le Mans 2 days ago as planned and met up in town with my friend C as planned. Always a joy to meet up again.
Little did we know we would be the victims of a fairly violent aggression later that night. We were robbed of possessions and left semi unconscious on the pavement. I had no idea what happened to C but when I arrived in hospital, after a group of young people called an ambulance, C had also been transferred there. The rest of the night was spent there after some immediate first aid. One forgets how much one bleeds with a facial injury. Yesterday morning we were released after a head scan in my case. Got a replacement phone, went to the police, hired a car was the order of the day.
Met up with the rest of the group which arrived late afternoon from Germany.
It is still dark outside and sleep is hard to come by. My left eye has swollen and diverse pains can be felt.
Also wondering how to solve the problem that my car is in the middle of town with my medication + entrance tickets to the racing track +++ and the keys in the hand of my attacker. Basically we are stuck for the time being.
