The French Countryside….from a bus window

Our tour today took us through the French countryside to the Chateau Chenonceau, a French chateau that was literally created by women.  I don’t have time to explain but it began with a King’s girlfriend to whom he gave the property and after his death the Queen snatched it back from the girlfriend!

Yes, it was built over a river

We are tired so I’ll make this short. We went to the Chateau Chenonceau and to another,the Chateau Amboise and then to the old part of Tours.
