Yesterday, Geneva Lake at Montreaux. A very good castle guide Eric, ex-journalist, living in Italy's Elba island. He connected with the group well with his humour. E.g. big wooden chest of old kings are the precursor of Louis Vuitton's chest.
Bright sunshine in the afternoon. Farmland images taken from moving coach. Took hundreds of image of the countryside. One good image looking like a painting is:
Poor dinner at a hotel in France. Cucumber and tomatoes as first course. Ham and veg. A piece of apple pie.The agency must be trying to cut costs but certainly this is not the way to do it. Isolated place.
Overnight at Novotel Hotel in Dijon. 2 storeys + basement. No lift and so it is a great danger for seniors. One daughter prohibited her 80-year-olud father to go downstairs to basement room on his own, after the fall accident at Montreaux escalator. Another widow of 65 years of age, with left knee lamenss nearly fell on her face at Rhine Falls bur Julia spotted her and held her up.
