I found a campground. Not the one you recommended. I just followed some signs
This one seems to be for the young party crowd. It's 1:30 now and they are still going. And I am tired after last night's hobo sleep.
Never again.
I spent $20 Euro and the showers sucked. The internet sucks.
And it is wall to wall tents
This is not camping
I would rather be camping on the streets of Paris with the bums....really!

And of course, Australia, Argentina and California now have some of the oldest vines in the world.
You forgot to mention South Africa

Yes, that is sooooo true
I like that it is safe here in Europe but I miss the chaos remoteness if the third world.
But I belong in the second world where ever that is........maybe Lima?

Yup. I'd be planting myself in Lima with 150 bikinis. But that's just me.

+1 Lima, Lima, Lima. Come on Ed, get the chant going...

Besides... Paris sucks! (yeah, I know... culture, beauty, etc, etc.)
But I've been there a dozen times. (for me... it sucks)(sorry Frenchies)

Lima, Lima, Lima!

Lima Lima Lima......I am on my way now
I have a little stop over in Madrid......more Spanish wine.
I can't say Paris sucks. I just don't like the big cities for the most part.
But I like France.

Back to Bordeaux

Sometimes I wonder if people believe my stories. Even for me it is hard to believe some of the things that I do. So here's a picture of me camping in the vineyard of Chateau Lafite.

My first stop that day was a Chateau called Gruard Larose. I almost didn't stop there but I am glad I did. It was the best Bordeaux wine I have had so far.

Here is a look inside the wine library room at Chateau Gruard Larose.
They had wines dating back to the time when Napoleon was in charge......crazy! I wanted to get my wine opener out and start opening some of these hand blown bottles
