We are now in Dijon, France it is dry here, sunshine but a cold winds from the mountains and the snow from yesterday. We head out walking to the train station and on to the town of Beaune a small town in the middle of the wine country, a walk around checking out a couple places, the historic hospital and the square, back to Dijon in the afternoon for a walk about the city, some dinner the back to hotel and calling it a night. On the 29th of Oct we are off for the Owl walk, this walk is marked by small brass owls on the sidewalk pointing the way to a small brass owl on the corner of Notre dame church, if you rub this very worn owl with your left hand you can make a wish. Then it off for more exploring the city with a trip to the top of Philippe Le Bon Tower, a climb of 315 steps up a winding staircase with a nice view of the city. A stop for a hamburger, french fries (wow they look the same as our french fries) lol and a beer to wash it all down, went to a Dijon mustard store got a few smalls bottles to bring home. Then it is back to our hotel to get our luggage and head off for the train to Reims.
