Oct 8, 2004 - Rouen

Hello all, We were very sad to leave Paris, but we have to fly out of there so we'll be back before we leave to do some things that we missed(Catacombs, Louvre) Today we are in Rouen where Joan of Arc was burned at the steak. We visited the Roen Notre Dame, and museum de beaux arts. We're staying at a cute little hotel that's right across the street from the Cathedral. Tomorrow we're going to visit the D-day beaches. Will write more soon....it took a long time to download all these photos (Look at Paris entry too). Enjoy!

It's also where I ran into my first, and hopefully last, accommodation glitch. The Lonely Planet guidebook is a backpacker's bible, filled with all sorts of useful travel information. But the books aren't always updated every year...
