6 months on a Duc, Pt IV
My first stop after a beautiful day of riding was Bloise
where I watched the local sport
then on down to Amboise (
where Leonardi da Vinci died & there is a museum with models of many of his designs, like this tank
then on down the Loire River valley for a few days
lots of mustard grown in the area
but not the place you'd expect to find a pagoda, near Château de la Bourdaisière (
I continued my journey out to the west coast of France through beautiful country
and stopped on a French Army base to see their Musée des Blindés (which means tank) (
because I'm a huge WW II history buff.
Here I found the worlds badest scooter
That is a 90mm recoilless rifle under the seat.
The rest of my trip took my down through La Rochelle (
, Bordeaux (
, & then on into Spain. Unfortunately my camera & laptop were stolen out of my room while I was in the shower in Bordeaux so I lost the pictures of that part. Fortunately I had sent my images to a friend so didn't lose all of them to this point.
Next week I'll pick up with the Brothels of Madrid, the Steel of Toledo, the Enchanted City of Conan the Barbarian, and the Gaudi-ness of Barcelona.
