Quick note to my faithful readers--(the unfaithful ones . . .well, just skip this note).
We are ready to set sail, from Chalon sur Saone. We go downriver on the Saone to the confluence with the Rhone, then continue to Nice.
Along the way, we will see--among other smaller towns--Lyon and Avignon.
OK--everyone now fix in your minds "Sur le pont D'Avignon". . .ah, high school French.
