Day Two: Strasbourg

The weather forecasts were all telling us it would be raining with thunderstorms in Strasbourg today, and so it dawned - bright sun, warm and blue skies!  How do they get it so wrong?!

After a leisurely start following our late night (so leisurely I had to nip down to breakfast, sorry 'le petit déjeuner', before they closed and bring it back to the room while Angela stayed in bed!) we jumped on the tram for short ride into town to see the sights of Strasbourg.

Firs stop the Cathedral with the Astronomical Clock (and a lot more besides) ...

Refreshments on the way to the Cathedral

Strasbourg Cathedral

After a spot of lunch we took in a river cruise around Strasbourg and up to the European Parliament building ...

Tomorrow we leave France behind (for now) and head for Austria.

Angela's Postscript

"Andy was like an ice cream in a microwave, he melted! ... delicious food ... lovely old buildings ... hotel room OK but I especially like their idea of air conditioning which starts at 21C"
