And so after a long flight - 12+ hours - we arrived in Paris, grabbed a quick drink and then on to Birmingham. Unfortunately, Pat's suitcase decided to stop off in Paris but will hopefully be delivered tomorrow! Back to a sunny UK, with a temperature not much cooler than Hanoi yesterday, where the blossom is in full swing. Lots of memories of a lovely holiday. ...
It was very dark and wet when we woke up to the alarm. Leanne arrived as planned and drove us to the airport. Unfortunately, as we left the M6 there was a huge tail back where we needed to go, presumably due to an accident.. We sat in it for a while, moving 100yds in 10 mins.

All built with no automatic tools, often with marvellous engineering - tunnels, viaducts, locks; where we were moored the canal was for a long distance ...
This was a jam-packed day. And after all of the historical site-seeing, we ended the day seeing the Shakespeare play "King John". This play is not performed very often and we could understand why. Even though the production we saw was very good -- They set the play in a modern setting using modern music (Burt Bacharach being one songster they used), the play itself was just ok.
