Chateau de Chinon, Chinon, France

This has been quite the trip...Left New York on Dec 27th and have been to Brugge in  Belgium and then on to France. Lots of driving but note that the steering wheel is on the left side and one drives on the US side of the road.....I guess it is really the French side of the road as they are much older then we are. At any rate it is nice to be able to not think about making turns etc.....

Not much posting going on as the internet has been fairly non-existent or so slow one can hardly read emails. So here are a few of my favorites from the past week or so....
Chateau De Marcay, France

 In the end I thoroughly enjoyed France - much more then I thought. Specifically the food was off the charts - basically we ate our way through the country. There are officially no more croissants or foie gras left in the country. All kidding aside this is one beautiful country and the locals have been quite accommodating. Today is Versailles.......

Happy New Year and all the best for 2013.


  1. Wow, Harry, thanks for checking out France. I think I would like to visit there someday. Do you know French, or is English (US) acceptable?

    Happy Birthday!
