Dispatch from Gare de Lyon

I’m here in a Paris train station waiting for my train to Perpignan. Time for a very quick post.

Yesterday, Normandy. Took a tour of the D-Day historic sites, including the big museum in Caen. I saw Omaha and Utah beaches as well as the American cemetery at Omaha. Needless to say a powerful sense of history remains in this part of France. I learned a lot about this dark time in Europe and the heroics of D-Day.

I also met four other Americans who were on the tour, two from Georgia and two from the Boston area. I helped them figure out how to use the Metro.

Sorry no photos yet, I haven’t had time to download them from the camera. Onward to Perpignan.
