We left the Alpes today and travelled by train to Reims, in the champagne region of France. I had a 10 minute glimpse of Paris today as we went through there on the way. Sun shining and shops waiting for me to visit at the end of the month.
We wandered into Reims this afternoon and stumbled across a giant mechanical robot spider next to the Notre Dame Cathedral. It walks, spits and pops off ! It was fantastic to see it work, my Dad would have loved it (and most likely wanted to pull it apart and put it back together again).
