France and the UK

Bonjour mes amis.

We landed in Paris then hired a car and took a drive through the extremely beautiful countryside. We payed tribute to the Aussie soldiers who made their final resting place in a war memorial in Fromelle.

All Australians would be extremely grateful to the French for the way they have kept the cemetery grounds in perfect order.

We met with Philippe Quignon a local farmer in the Amiens district, who showed us several of his small cropping operations and discussed issues facing their soil make up and their ability to mine chalk from under their pastures.

We then jumped on the Eurostar train

and travelled under the English Channel into London - King's Cross; where we caught a connecting train north to Edinburgh Scotland.

Catch you later - more from Scotland, Cheers Rob
