allans favourite dish Tartar
After arriving late in Paris we got transport to go to our hotel which was an hour drive away from the airport. Very tired we had to wait for the room to be ready but a coffee helped with the waiting. For the next three days we had the city of Paris for ourselves. Lots to see although we have been there several times. But Paris is Paris and has it's romantic moments. For us well we love Paris. That night we enjoyed a meal at the place we always go. Beef Tartar is the dish I go for Liz is not so for raw meat but with some salt and pepper, you can't have any better. Next day we went to the Notre Dame but not to see the church but for a chapel behind it. We walked all the way for that is what you do in Paris. We walked through the street where all the wholesalers sell pity, you can't buy there but if you want to you have to buy ten or so and that is a lot of money. We found the chapel but it is in the grounds of the Notre Dame and to get

paix de Republique
in there you have to stand in the row for a long - long time so we save that for another time. The way back to the hotel we stopped a few times for coffee and a bite to eat but we had to be back in time for we would be picked up at 18.30 the evening. It was for the dinner and show at the Moulin Rouge. So many times been in Paris but never saw the show. So it was now or never. Well it was well worth it, so if you visit the city of lights, go and see the show. On Friday we went to Peugeot to pick up the car we will use for the next few month. This time at another address. Hard to find for it was inside a parking station. After a little wait we received the car set the navigation and we were on the way to Etten Leur to see Liz Brother and sister in law. Always a very nice reception after a very quick trip through the north of France and Belgium. We spend a few days with Hugo & Jola. Did some shopping and on Monday 9th

Notre Dame
of June we left for Rouen. Nice city with lots of history. Rollo the Viking and Jeanne d'Arc. Jeanne was burned here on the stakes. Everything by foot again but Rouen old city is not so big and we are staying very close to it. The wooden houses date back to 14th , 15th and 16th century. Obviously no white ants. Next stop will be the Loire with many castles.
