|Andre and Nisette|
Then off to Chatenay Malabry to visit Andre and Nisette. They pull out the champagne - looks fancy - grand cru. The place is how I remember it, except for the back yard, street and station. I don't remember those at all. It's been 30 years since I last saw them.
Andre is instantly recognisable. When he speaks his eyes twinkle, and he looks closer to 40 than 80. Nisette has not changed much either.
They hop around - mainly Nisette says something and Andre hops - the recipe for a long happy marriage. Lunch is with some Grand Cru 1988 - wasted on me. The cheeses are just fantastic.

Day 3 - montmartre, Sacre Coeur where we did the tourist train. Lunch was a nice little place.
We stopped at the Catacombs. No chance to get in with the queue. Then off to the kids science museum - Musee de la Decouverte. Lots to see, and only saw half before it closed.
The next day, we had to cover about 3 or 400 kms via Auxerre - a nice medieval town, and Beaune - a nice medieval town, and a centre of the Bourgogne wine region.
|The central park at Quincieux|
We found a hotel at Quinceaux. This place is so tiny. There was a nice park, some scootering in the carpark, then a 3 course meal. Food is about 100 x better in the small towns, than in our we don't care about tourists home.
