The long journey home has started, with several stops along the way, first Avignon. Make sure you read the entire blog post today as there is a small quiz at the end!
But first, Jill and I want to thank our hosts in Caromb, Ian and Axelle! Merci beaucoup! What a wonderful home and a gracious family!
Avignon! The walled city next to the Rhone River.
Specialized Rock Hopper!!! A classic!
During the 14th century, the Popes moved from Italy to Avignon and for over 100 years and with 5 different Popes, this was the home of the Catholic Church. Of course it wouldn’t be the Catholic Church unless they built and over the top Pope’s Palace! Now its a museum.
Now finally, a quiz…… Why could this kid’s merry go round not be in the United States?
