of drying our gear. Shoes perched precariously
on 3rd floor ledge!
Upon waking, the room looked like a Chinese laundry, but it was doing the trick. We only have until tomorrow to dry them this way and we weren’t going to spend time looking for a laundry in town. Decided to go exploring as the sun had popped its head out when we woke, so Rouen was there to see. This city is very old with buildings dating back to 1066 [battle of Hastings…only thing I remember from school } and what a fantastic place to visit. History is all around you. Every street, nook and cranny is a photo opportunity and we were in our element.

But then we were horrified to see a bloody great snake writhe it's way out of one of the bell towers!
I kid you not, and we've got the photo to prove it!
Then the snake turned into twisted tree roots, both beautiful and freaky and we began to wonder what the hell was in that delicious Lebanese food.
Next thing you know the whole thing has erupted into flames and there's a giant viking coming for us! This was some trip!
If anyone is ever intending coming to Rouen, you must, absolutely, see this show. Lasting 30 minutes, trying to describe it would not do it justice. Take our word, it’s amazing.
