On the way to the Museum...On the way to the Museum...On the way to the Museum...

Oooh that church is so dirty! So, Mabel, start cleaning!
A stay in Dijon would not be complete without a visit to the Musées de la Vie Bourguignonne (Museum of Burgundian Life). This charming history of daily life in Dijon from the 18th century to the beginning of the 20thcentury, is set in the peaceful cloister of the Bernadine Monastery. The ground floor has displays of rural life which are quite life like and a wonderful representation of how life was. Difficult! On the first floor, the reconstruction of 10 businesses was fascinating. It was most exciting for us when we saw the Pernot Biscuit business … Lyn and Neville’s apartment in Villa Pernot featured.

Thursday brings us to our last day in Dijon, enjoying a progressive lunch: first at La Petite Rein Bistro near the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy then on to La Dolce Vita for coffee and a sweet treat. Perfect.

Au revoir, Dijon! Au revoir France! Stay strong, beautiful country!
