On our last day in Paris we walked to the Pere Lachaise cemetery, quite a long hike from the Latin Quarter.
The cemetery is beautiful and is the final resting place for lots of famous people.
There were very few tourists there, and most were at Jim Morrison’s grave.
On the way back we saw a sign of the times–a line of asylum-seekers.
Later in the day we spent some time in the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens.
That night we met up with Cherie’s niece and her husband, who were arriving for a visit just as we were leaving.
The next morning we rented a car, pulled up the anchor and set off on a 1300 km trip across Champagne, Lorraine and Alsace.
