... 15,000 homes in Reims at the beginning of the war and at the end, there were 626 that were completely undamaged, and about 8,000 that were complete rubble. They did a really good rebuilding job around the city center and the cathedral areas, with very classy buildings in mainly mid to late 1800’s style plus a lot in the Art Deco style (I read that, I haven’t actually seen any). The outer parts of the city have a lot of the very ...

... French and the same number of German troops were killed from Feb 1916 onwards. Later on we drove out to the various Memorials to those who died and saw the fields full of gravestones - beautifully set in manicured gardens and each white cross engraved with a red plant in front.

She agreed and he met his goal. In Lyon, there is a famous upscale food mart, "les Halles de Bocuse". This morning, about 30 of the 190 passengers signed up to tour this mart with the boat's chef. I, of course, was ...

... it just seemed hard work for no reward, let alone the rain putting a dampener on things. We saw more English boats today and even another French one!

We arrived at Ligny-en-Barrois in 4 ¾ hours after 16 kilometres and 16 locks so slow progress, but it was sunny and a lovely marina with new pontoon and a picnic site which we share with campervans.
