Rhine Getaway Day 6 - Strasbourg, France
|Carol is excited to be in Strasbourg, France!|
We toured "Petite France" with the sweet half-timbered houses that look almost German. Well, they sort of are. Alsace has been part of both Germany and France throughout history as the Germans have always thought the border should be at the Vosges Mountains, and the French have always thought it should be at the Rhine River. Right now, the French win.

We also went into the center of town where they are setting up for the Christmas Market that starts on Friday.
After a tour of the town, we went into the gorgeous Strasbourg Cathedral. It was lovely. Again, George got most of the shots while I did the video. As soon as we were done we went up 332 steps to the top of the tower (surprise, surprise - Weavers have this thing about towers).
After this, we were given a demonstration on how to make Tarte Flambe, and here is my first taste:
George went to a mandatory meeting about disembarking (no way is this already over - and surprise that I would not want to go to a MEETING), and I blogged this post.

After this, we just could not do the dancing activity for the evening and fell fast asleep within minutes of hitting the pillow. I think it was at 9pm!
Our last full day is going to be a trip through the Black Forest. We have an option to go to the cuckoo clocks or go for a hike up Ravenna Gorge. Guess which one the Weavers are going to take? It probably will be a no-brainer if you know us well. THE HIKE!
I am going to put the pictures from our Fuji camera. I wish I had been transferring them over to here, but I just got around to doing it this morning. :) Enjoy these at the end:
