Vacation Note:
Hôtel de France


Mon ami, Jean-sans-Pnostalgie, has been walking around his natal town (famous from Jeanne d’Arc days) taking pictures. His attempts to make Chinon look like the capital of French lugubriousness aren’t working, at least chez moi. If I’m thinking that I was lucky not to grow up next to an abattoir, it’s only because I know that I’d have gotten into big trouble….

    The Office du Tourisme of Chinon is suing me for this! 🙂
    Chinon is not so bad, there is a beautiful castle and lovely old houses and the river is beautiful. In summer it’s a very pretty old little town. It is only a bit lugubrious in my memory (and in winter).
