Today was completely devoted to culture and cuisine- no winery visits. (what?) We started with a miniature train ride with commentary through the narrow old town of Montpellier. We had the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon free- some went to the museums, others went shopping; I however as the tour guide made multiple calls to verify that tomorrow’s flight and train were on schedule. Although we were never impacted directly by the strikes and slowdowns that permeated France during our stay, there was an angst that we might be affected. But it wasn’t to be: everyone was able able to return home safely.

Our farewell dinner was held in Restaurant Alexandre, run by the dynamic husband/wife do of Dany and Michel Alexandre. What a repast to conclude our tour! I’m afraid to weigh in this month for Weightwatchers! We guarantee you’ll gain weight.

Roz and I and my cousin Linda and her boyfriend extended our stay with 3 nights in Paris, the most romantic city in the world. We used the opportunity to meet up with our cousins from Belgium and Argentina who live in Paris, and our old friends from our first year in Normandy when we were first married. We also met an Omar Marottoli, an Argentinian who lives in Paris who found us via the internet. He has done geneological reserach and showed how we were related.

A delightful ending to our extended stay in France.
