L’Intendant:  A super duper wine store.  We stopped in her so MA could look for a particular wine for son Jim.

Walking back to our hotel we noticed all of the National Police vans with cops parked along the street….wondering if they were waiting for something to happen?

I hope you enjoyed the little walk around our hotel and the photos.  Let me know, by leaving a comment, thanks Wayne.
