|The Bordeaux train shed is enormous. It was built by the CF du Midi. On the right is the Nivea train, a ten car train adapted to demonstrate Nivea products.|
We passed Tours in the distance, then crossed the Loire and I was able to pick out the village of Vouvray before entering the tunnel under the vine yards.
As we were walking down the platform at Montparnasse we saw a lady with a Dachsund. Mary said "I bet it wants to pee". Sure enough it came to a halt at the first post and relieved itself.
Back at the rue de Levis we found some Gariguettes in Monoprix and bought some fraises to test them against.
