... both huge but german one in particular took my breath away. Unlike the allied forces who are buried all over the place, all the german bodies where gathered up and buried in one place. The graves are marked with crosses. They don't even get one cross each, there is one cross for four soldiers, and it was a massive field of crosses. Over 45,000 soldiers are buried here. Looking through them at ground level, you cannot see through the crosses to the fields beyond. So much ...
Bit of a quiet one today. I was up reasonably early to pack my meagre possessions and head to Gare du Nord. After a very smelly cab ride, I found Gare du Nord to be a very easy train station to negotiate, which was a relief because when the cab pulled up I looked up and thought "My God its HUGE" Like Italy, they don't tell you which platform to go to until 20 minutes before departure.

So the first thing we do is stock up on supplies, then make ourselves dinner and relax over a wine or 3 in our new temporary home.
... t speak english so I had to pick up as many french words as I can to understand what she was saying. Thankfully, I understood at least 60% of what she was saying (Thank you to my french tutor! Haha!). We needed to visit the residence office to give our documents so we headed to the center. We were practicing our map reading skills as we walked the streets of this unknown city. We were surviving on my basic french skills in buying our sim cards, cellphone credits and even unlocking ...
