Today has been a real adventure. In a few days we'll laugh about the adrenaline rush of racing thru Paris on our bikes, like we in some great rally race, or an American car chase. We were told that we could not take our bikes on the Subway, so in order to get from Paris Nord station, we would have to ride to Montparnasse station, for our trip south.

... the life of Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was assassinated in Canterbury Cathedral on the orders of King Henry II of England. The Bayeux Tapestry was kept here from the 11th to the 18th centuries, probably displayed for the first time on the day the cathedral was consecrated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror. We then left Bayeux. It was hard driving. Susie was tired and became ...
