    Took a taxi into the City of Tours to get our mini-bus tour of the chateaux. Started with a female guide and 4 Brazilians, swapped at lunch to a male French guide and 4 girls from Paraguay- maybe the Brazilians did not like us! First we went to Amboise. Beautiful chateau perched on the hill overlooking the centre of the town, where Leonardo Da Vinci is buried in a small chapel. Remodelled by Charles VIII in1492, over half has been removed over time, the bricks ...

    Drove across more pretty county, more corn, sunflowers and grapes. Arrived at Tours. Booked our chateaux tour for tomorrow. Then went to find a campsite and have lunch. Set off for Amboise, where we went to Clos Lucé, a small chateau/country house built in 1590. It was given in 1516 by King Francis 1st to Leonardo Da Vinci. The latter spent his last 4 years there and died in 1519. ...

    ... instantly, just like I've forgotten everything I learned at every other wine tasting I've been to. Boubi joined us for a little while but quickly got bored when he realized there was no food on offer. One thing we learned was that not only does French wine have an "appellation controlée," so do pâtés and cheeses. And the five things that must always be on a French wine bottle are: the appellation controlée (e.g., A.C. Chinon), the winemaker, the alcohol ...

    ... kept. The floor is all tilty, and I do worry a bit about the wardrobe in the corner. I had a helluva time getting my room door open. Barb and Mickey are down the hall and noticed me having trouble, so Barb came over and managed to get it open. I feel like an idiot.

    After playing the Name Game in the courtyard (Boubi joined us, and he's even more unpredictable than he was five years ago), we had a group dinner at Le Chapeau Rouge in the town. There were amuse-bouches ...

    Ever since I read 'The Devil's Brood' By Sharon Kay Penman I had been wanting to visit this area of France. Between Le Mans, Samur and Chinon, played out the trubulent lives of Eleanor, her Husband Henry II and her sons Richard Coeur d' Leon & John. Henry, Richard and Eleanor are all buried at Fontevraud Abbey. Whilst the exact location of their graves are uncertain, their tomb effigies have been very well preserved and sit in the Abbey today. This was quite a unique order at this Abbey as ...
