This trip’s theme was supposed to Winery tour. I wanted to visit Chateau Margaux!
I told a lady who arranges winery tour in tourist information office that I want to visit to chateau Margaux.
She said, “THE Chateau Margaux!?” “Do you have reservation?”
I said, “No.” She said, “It’s a problem!.” I’m pretty sure that she thought we are stupid tourist.
According to her we need at least 6 weeks advanced reservation.
We didn’t plane this French trip 6 weeks ago…. After that our theme was changed without my consensus.
Since Pius loves pre-historic place and held a GPS, wherever we arrived, it was pre-historic place.
Pech-Merle, they provided French and English, but explanation in English was only one sentence.
Meanwhile, explanation in French was 15-20 sentences. French people nodded and showed their excitement.
Without explanation, it was very hard to understand drawings. I though I can draw better than this….
5/7 Paris-Bordeaux by TGV
dated back to 15000 years plus. Also, there are footprints dated back to the same time. Unfortunately, I wasn't allow to take
photos. Lascaux II is a duplicate of the orginal Lascaux Cave. The paintings are indeed impressive.
