Photos from Rouen!

This monument in the Cathedrale Notre Dame de Rouen is actually to memorialize a guy you've heard of, if only in a movie starring a fox. Richard Lionheart, King Richard I of England, was buried in several different parts of France, and his heart is here in Rouen, in this tomb. (His brain is in Poitou, and his nerve is buried along with the rest of him, in Anjou.)

The last six pictures are dinner at the only decent-looking place we could find that was open on the religious holiday of Pentecost (bad enough that it was Sunday evening) -- the buffet at the Comfort Inn between La Tourville and Elbeuf, in the village of Cleon. More on that shortly. :-)
