Cloudy start, but the forecast was good. After yesterday, dry was OK. But it warmed up and the sun came out. And we wore clothes - not t-shirt and shorts. The French are already in winter clothing - coats, scarves and boots.
The tram system is fabulous. We got off at the stop for the viewing tower and found it, and found that it was shut on Mondays! Never ...
